Making Waves. Throwing Clay.
Immerse yourself in the world of ceramics at the vibrant Braitmayer Ceramics Studio, where creativity knows no bounds. Here, students uncover their artistic potential and nurture skills to communicate visually, all while embodying our art department's philosophy of building a vital connection with the arts. A cornerstone of our curriculum is our strategic location near Boston, Providence, and New York, enabling students to explore museums and attend insightful lectures.
During the academic day, six ceramics courses cater to various skill levels, complemented by ceramics as an after-school co-curricular offering. For independent projects, the studio is open on Sunday afternoons.

Wood Kiln Firing Tradition
And for a truly exceptional experience, take part in our community firing ritual. Our advanced ceramics students and local artists are invited to partake in the biannual firing of Tabor's wood kiln. Over a 36-hour period, hand-feed the kiln with wood, where the ash's interaction with glazes creates a uniquely captivating look on the fired pieces. This is your chance to touch the ancient art of ceramics and leave your mark on its evolving legacy.
