Molly Schulps

Department Chair

Professor of Art



Molly Schulps was exposed to clay at an early age by her father who was a successful production potter and well respected in the field. Molly has been, primarily, a ceramist since 1995 although she also uses many other materials such as paint, wood, wax, wire, etc. She was a part-time lecturer at many different colleges and universities throughout Southern California. Molly is now the head of the Ceramics Program at Cypress College since 2004. She has exhibited her ceramic work nationally and has facilitated and presented at several ceramic workshops. Her work has always been somewhat figural, whether it is the figure or anthropomorphic forms, which has led her to the current exploration of sculptural animals.  This newer work delves into the world of science, kitsch, and creation with a humorous hand to create a narrative. Schulps earned her master of fine arts, with distinction, from California State University, Northridge in 2001.
