About the Facility
Professor Terpstra came to UW-L in 1997 and embarked on an extensive reorganization of the studio space. It is a spacious facility with both traditional wheel throwing and hand-building areas. A state-of-the-art gas-fired kiln was installed in March, 1998, enabling more frequent and efficient firing of ceramic works. Fire brick rescued from an older kiln was formed into the department's first wood-fired kiln. Firing this unique kiln produces more than beautiful ceramic finishes; it becomes a bonding experience for the students who take shifts tending the three day firing process.
