Centre College's Minnesota ceramics collection contains some fine examples of wood-fired pottery, an ancient process which produces unpredictable and serendipitous surfaces through the interplay of ash, air, and fire. 

In this exhibit, we will learn how to read the surface of a vessel and recognize the hallmarks of this distinctive firing technique.
