The OSU Craft Center Ceramics Studio is designed as a welcoming, functional community space. There are 13 electric wheels, including a wheel chair accessible wheel. The studio also has a kickwheel, handbuilding space and a range of handbuilding supplies, wedging tables, a slab roller, a pug mill, and an assortment of high fire glazes. The Craft Center Manager and two student clay techs keep the studio running and the kilns firing.
