  • The Otis Ceramics Studio is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week to registered full time students.  There is a studio technician available for assistance on the days posted in our schedule.  The ceramics studio is a self-guided space and as such students are expected to follow the following guidelines at all times: 
  • Always clean your workspace and tools when finished working.   
  • Always wipe your work surfaces and floor when finished using a wet sponge or mop where applicable.  The reduction of clay dust is of utmost importance. 
  • Rinse items containing clay or glaze in the settling sink located inside the ceramics studio only.  For all other materials use the sink located in the sculpture studio. 
  • Never leave work on work tables.  Store all work in progress on the storage racks or finished work on the  racks for firing. 
  • Store bags of clay in the designated area. 
  • Do not touch work that is not yours.  
  • Worked that is left on shelves for more than three weeks may be disposed of.
