Welcome

Welcome to the University of Florida Ceramics Department in the School of Art + Art History.  The University of Florida in Gainesville is located in the heart of beautiful North Central Florida, situated between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico.   

The Ceramic department is housed in the Fine Arts complex on the eastern edge of campus consisting of a dynamic community of undergraduate, post-baccalaureate, and graduate fine arts students, faculty and administrative staff, and supported by the AFA Library and SAAH galleries.  

The Ceramics program offers the opportunity for rigorous studio performance by connecting both technical and conceptual challenges in an encouraging and engaging environment. Students in Ceramics have active contact with the faculty and are encouraged in cros- disciplinary study.  Outside of the classroom, students participate in the student organization H.O.T Clay (Handbuilt Or Thrown), an energetic club that sponsors a variety of events, such as visiting artist workshops, gallery exhibitions, pottery sales and annual travel to the national ceramic conference.
