About the studios: With 25 electric potters’ wheels, a gas reduction kiln and three electric kilns, 92Y’s Ceramics Center is one of the best equipped in NYC. During the fall and spring semesters students have the opportunity to take classes using stoneware. In the summer, porcelain is the material of choice. All work is glaze-fired to cone 10. Clay is included in the cost of tuition (unless you use bagged clay, which may be purchased for $20 per 25-pound bag). Our firing charge is 5c per cubic inch for two firings for all work made in classes and workshops. Students must supply their own tools, which may be purchased from 92Y. Open studio time is available to currently enrolled students for a fee of $5 per hour.
