Ceramics at Stanford

This petition will be circulated to the Stanford University administration along with a detailed proposal for ceramics studio space: We, the undersigned Stanford students, believe that an on-campus ceramics studio would have tremendous value to the university. Stanford\'s outstanding student artists deserve facilities to match their talents. A ceramics studio would serve as a community center, an attraction for the campus, and an enabler of learning and artistic expression. The primary obstacle to creating such a studio is a lack of space. If space is set aside for ceramics, the Ceramics at Stanford club will be able to transform it into a working studio. We respectfully request that the university invest resources in finding or creating such a space.

Sponsor

When arriving at Stanford it was extremely disappointing to hear that there was no ceramics studio, so even a couple of wheels and a small space would be a great addition to what is already a fabulous campus.

    6 years ago Comments: I was blessed in junior high to use a private studio that possessed kilns, fifteen wheels, assorted glazes, and plenty of work space. I later enjoyed the same luxuries in my public high school's studio. Ceramics is an art form that I love and that helps me to relax and create something beautiful and creative. I've missed it here at Stanford.
