Luther College has a long and celebrated ceramic tradition that began when the art department was created. Introductory courses focus on developing functional skills and an appreciation for the aesthetics of functional ceramic form. The intermediate classes deepen students’ understanding of form, surface, and firing possibilities. Courses in sculpture investigate concepts of form, spatial relations and 3D design, gaining sensitivity in the composition, observation, and analysis of sculptural form.
