Stacked Glass by MFA alum Tom Schram

The area of sculpture embraces multiple interpretations of the medium, encouraging students to consider, time, space and site when creating. The philosophy of the sculpture area is very broad based. Students investigate materials, processes and contexts that best suit their mode of expression. Rigorous studio activity and strong conceptual development are essential to success in the program.

Clemson’s sculpture department also benefits from interaction with the South Carolina Botanical Gardens and it’s Nature Based Sculpture Program. The program has been accumulating site-specific out door sculpture by artists of both national and international acclaim.
