Larry Bush is one of the profs at RISD (not RSDI) and is a phenomenal
potter and teacher. I don't know about the other professors, but when
I visited 5 years ago, everyone welcomed me with enthusiasm. The
quality of graduate and undergraduate work is very high, and there is
lots of discussion between the different disciplines.
One potential drawback to firing at RISD is that the max. allowed
temp. for their kilns is cone 6. That being said, the kilns are SWEET!
Two Blau fiber kilns from Holland that are computer controlled, with
an interesting burner system.
I would NOT recommend enrolling in RISD classes just to get studio
space. They are fairly expensive, and involve quite a bit of research
and critique. (which is just great in my book) But if you are
considering studying full time, it is a really great program.
Hope that helps a little...

I'm conteplating a move back to Massachusetts, close to Providence. If I do
that, I'll be taking ceramics courses at RSDI, perhaps even enrolling
fulltime. I'd love to hear opinions about the current RSDI faculty and
Pacifica, California, for the time being
