Studios & Kiln Room

Students in the Ceramics and Fine Arts 3D programs have access to facilities including our wheel throwing studio, glazing studio, and electric and gas kilns.

MassArt has one of the premier ceramic kiln rooms in New England. The 3,000 square-foot kiln room, located in the Collins building, is fully ventilated for indoor firing and includes custom-made ventilation for each kiln, including raku and sawdust/smoke firing.

We offer spacious facilities, resources and equipment necessary for exploring a variety of contemporary and traditional ceramics techniques.

All Ceramics majors students learn to fire both gas (bisque and high fire reduction) and electric kilns, and to mix their own clays and glazes.
