I am interested in a discussion informed by “experiential knowledge” beyond post modernism, toward a “custodial aesthetic” that is based in community and mythical material, emerging as gesture, impression, or poetry. What can we contribute from a consciousness located in really knowing this place where the Columbia River and the oceanic environment meet? How does this liminal environment reveal itself on a pot, a canvas, a sculpture or a photograph? What lies below the surface of the river in the undercurrent that is unique to our river, to our imagination? What does any new perception bring to our instincts and our knowledge? How do we integrate this knowledge, which holds the biological, conceptual makings of its own history, into our environment? If we are always in the process of reorganizing our perceptions and materials do we need to hold on to the collective memory of the past? If we do, how do we reawaken our collective memory?


The goal of our program, since its inception in 1969, has been to provide students with a high quality ceramics program by exploring a broad spectrum of ways to work with clay and glazes as an expressive medium, and by focusing on ways to interact and collaborate with the local community through the arts. The 3-D clay program emphasizes the making of both conceptual and utilitarian work, and gives students the opportunity to gather and use local materials in their ceramic expression, and to build and fire kilns. In addition to our gas and electric kilns, our wood-fired traditional anagama, (based on the ancient Japanese climbing “cave” or “dragon” kiln introduced from China in the fifth century), is fired by students twice a year using locally collected and recycled wood. Students work alongside with both professional artists and community members, including fisherman, loggers, friends, and neighbors.
