Applied Arts at Mount Allison University 1906-1960

Pottery and China Painting

China painting was one of the first courses incorporated into the Applied Arts program. Students would apply their designs with glaze materials on blank prefabricated china. The glazed items were then fired in a kiln. Later, pottery was added to the curriculum and students would learn to make bowls, pitchers and vases with clay by hand or on the wheel. These forms would then be glazed and fired.
