Through content, form, and materials, graduates of the Minnesota New Institute for Ceramic Education (MN NICE) contend with the implications of teetering in clay and mixed media.

MN NICE is a new educational model launched in 2014 as a collaboration between the Northern Clay Center and artist/educator Ursula Hargens. This certificate program provides rigorous, personalized instruction and individual mentorship by established, local ceramic artists (referred to in the program as “Affiliate Artists”). MN NICE extends beyond the classroom to include artist lectures, gallery tours, and studio visits to take advantage of the rich ceramic resources throughout the Twin Cities. The program strives to prepare students both artistically and professionally whether they are seeking gallery representation, applying for graduate school, or selling work to the public. During the run of the show, MN NICE artists will offer three casual, drop-in guided tours of the Teetering exhibition for the public.
