  • 7 computerized electric kilns
  • 2 large indoor car kilns
  • 2 soda kilns
  • 2 residual salt kilns
  • 1 salt kiln
  • 1 wood fired train kiln
  • 1 wood/soda kiln
  • 1 raku kiln
  • 2 Soldner clay mixers
  • De-airing pugmill
  • Wide variety of treadle and electric potter's wheels
  • Bailey slab roller
  • Enclosed sandblaster
  • Fully stocked glaze area
  • Spraybooth
  • Ball mill


The studio in glassblowing is one of the few remaining locations for this type of study in the central midwest region. The newly equipped facility has a primary focus on beginning to intermediate level glass-blowing, casting and cold-work. Enrollment in these classes is limited to senior level students with prior experience in vessel building.
