privately-owned facility.

Internship applicants must be hardworking and reliable individuals with a comprehensive

education and/or experience in throwing and hand building techniques.

12-15 “studio hours” of paid studio assistance on average per week required. Some weeks

may require less than 12-15 hours and some weeks may require more than 12-15 hours

depending upon the volume of activities in the studio. Additional paid hours of work outside of

normal duties may be available throughout the year.

maintenance duties such as shoveling walkways during winter months will also be included.

This is a fabulous opportunity for the serious ceramic artist to develop new works, portfolio

pieces, while receiving extensive and detailed training and experience firing numerous varieties

of kiln. Hours incurred making the individual’s own ceramic wares, loading, and firing of those

wares are not considered part of the “studio hours”
