Judy Wojcik
Associate Professor of Art

Judy Wojcik teaches a variety of courses in ceramics, including a new course entitled Sustainable Ceramics, which helps students understand the carbon footprint of ceramics, the sustainable use of materials, researching sustainable firing practices and the healthy use of one’s body throughout one’s career.

She notes, “the art department’s curriculum accommodates majors and non-majors.  Students that are majoring in other disciplines are often extremely talented and bring inter-disciplinary ideas to the studio … I love this!”

Sustainable Ceramics (Special Topics Spring 2015) – The course will encompass understanding our carbon footprint, the sustainable use of materials, researching sustainable firing practices and the healthy use of one’s body throughout one’s career.

My medium of choice is clay because it lends itself to creating utilitarian vessels as well as sculptural objects. My focus has been on wood firing but I am currently exploring low-fire alternatives.

I chose to work at Earlham because it is a small liberal arts college. The art department’s curriculum accommodates majors and non-majors. Students that are majoring in other disciplines are often extremely talented and bring interdisciplinary ideas to the studio … I love this!

Earlham students are extremely friendly and helpful and the fact that they are from diverse places and backgrounds adds to the richness of Earlham’s environment.

I enjoy traveling and working in my home studio. I often go antiquing or thrift shopping to search for clay objects others discarded. When there is time, gardening and experimenting in the kitchen with multicultural recipes gives me an excuse to entertain friends (or clay students).

Earlham College, an independent, residential college, aspires to provide the highest-quality undergraduate education in the liberal arts and sciences, shaped by the distinctive perspectives of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
