Ceramics Studio

Juniata's Ceramics Studio, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, has: 6 kick wheels, 11 electric wheels, a slab roller, and all the necessary clay and glaze mixing equipment. Our kilns include: 1 gas kiln, 2 electric kilns, 1 test-size electric kiln, 1 soda kiln, and an anagama kiln. The Anagama kiln is one of 3 in Pennsylvania. It is a wood fire kiln, meaning that all of the heat comes from wood not gas or electricity. Also, the glaze is created by melting ash due to an ultimate temperature of over 1200 degrees. the ceramic students at Juniata fire it off about once a semester. The process requires the students to fire it for 5 days straight, with students taking 3 hour shifts so that it is manned 24 hours a day. For those who love clay, there is no other experience like it in the world.
