How about putting a more positive spin on this discussion?
Since there are as many flavors of graduate schools as there are snow-flake
patterns and fingerprints I figure it is more like a matching game for my
Currently some of mine are looking at:
NY Academy of Art - one of the last schools in the country that focuses
solely on the figure. (Kilns are not currently functioning, but
hey...)(These guys even let the student sit in on classes and critiques!)
Utah- Logan- The students are Wood and Salt dudes and duddettes, and Logan
appears to be a very strong program with a focus on the vessel. Plus, they
were (super) nice when the one of the students went to visit. (Man! That
is a plus compared to some schools) Way to go John!
Texas A&M Corpus Christi- Something about that Louis Katz guy:)
WSU-Pullman- Very well equipped program with space for work/ decent money
offers (real good for TA's) and a very interdisciplinary approach to
teaching art. Works well with students coming from a small BA program where
the breath of study in art is there but the depth of specific content
classes is not.
(Another place where the students return and the faculty have been real
Savannah School of Art and Design- mostly post bac kids who are looking for
sexy computer technology no one on the planet can afford except very well
endowed focused programs.
Albuquerque- seems to not have any interest in the vessel as made on the
wheel, but has a strong ceramic sculpture program.
Maybe some of the others could add to this list. I would really like to
know schools that are positive about vessel making and are equipped to
handle that area of ceramics. As well as sculpture and then ones that
handle both. Sometimes we only hear the negative side.

Chris, Pete Pinnell/Nebraska has a great vessel-
functional program for grads. University of North
Texas is happy to have pot makers/throwers. I believe
the University of Texas/Tyler is developing a grad
program (already in place, actually) that encourages
potters - Gary Hatcher is the main man there.
There are others, but those leapt to mind.

I might add that Marywood University in PA (where I am in grad school) welcomes potters. My teacher, Matt Povse, is a wonderful potter.
