Rosanne Spiewak Ebner returned to ceramics Twenty-five years after receiving her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Syracuse University. She realized how much she missed working in clay while taking a ceramics class at her local community college, experimenting with different firing techniques and exploring new ways to work in clay. Encouraged by the positive results, she got more involved in the ceramics community and started exhibiting her work.
Especially excited by woodfiring in an Anagama kiln, she helped in the construction of Adelphi University’s Anagama kiln, and participated in many woodfirings and group shows with Professor William Shillalies and his students.
Rosanne participated in the construction of the Salt Fire kiln at Peter’s Valley, NJ and has helped organize workshops for the Long Island Crafts Guild as well as Nassau Community College.
Ms. Ebner decided to further her education and received her Masters of Arts degree from Adelphi University and a Masters of Fine Arts degree at the City University of New York’s Queens College.
Presently, she is an adjunct professor at City University of New York’s Queens College and Nassau Community College. Rosanne also teaches ceramics at Brickhouse Ceramic Center.
