Ceramics: Wheel-thrown Pottery
Winter 2018 quarter
The goal of this course is to provide students with opportunities to concentrate on advanced wheel throwing techniques. It is highly encouraged that students have previously taken a ceramics course and have the ability to center clay on a pottery wheel. Students will learn to develop better control over their cylinders, create forms with walls of uniform thickness, improve handles, spouts, lids and trimming techniques. Weekly demonstrations will include surface techniques, lidded forms, plates, large vases, double wall cylinders and teapots. Students will work toward the development of a personal style while drawing from a library of historically celebrated ceramic design.
