New from WVU Ceramics Studio

Before West Virginia University broke for Spring Break, MountainMade stopped in at the Ceramics Studio and discovered a treasure trove of affordable, functional pieces for you. The WVU Ceramics program is a 3-year intensive program dedicated to teaching traditional pottery making and providing their students with the techniques and skills needed to work as potters.

We selected a few place settings offering dinner and luncheon plates as well as a selection of bowls, cups, mugs, ramekins, mugs and bake ware. These student made pieces are functional, beautiful and just feel good in your hands. Complimentary glazes allow for a few select “sets’, but eclectic collections that you will enjoy using as much as we do. All pieces are sturdy, stoneware pieces that are dishwasher, oven and microwave safe.

This IS the next generation of potters. Built with the integrity and character that can only be found in West Virginia. Enjoy and use well!

Carrie, Rich and Becky recently visited the new WVU Ceramics Production Studio.  Relocated from its former home in the Creative Arts Center to Baker’s Ridge Road, the new studio provides retail and studio space.

Chris Brown, Production Studio Manager, took us on a tour of the studio and described the process they utilize and their equipment.  Chris describes how the new kiln works, which he designed with the input from experts, and the amount of product they can fire.  Their product is handcrafted by students, faculty and staff and is dishwasher and microwave safe.
