The Program provides a creative studio and laboratory study environment for Harvard students, staff, and faculty, as well as international artists, scholars, and scientists.

New leadership announced for the Ceramics Program: Shawn Panepinto, (right) and Kathy King, (left) will lead Ceramics (with President Drew Faust at the opening of the new Studio).
