This course is intended as an overview of ceramic studio practices. Students will learn a variety of hand-built ceramic techniques beginning with traditional methods and moving toward current ceramic technologies. Functional pottery will be emphasized with technical demonstrations based on utility. Thematic projects are designed to aide students toward the development of an informed and personal style while gaining solid foundation skills in both functional and sculptural work. Critical analysis of resulting work will be scheduled through written observations and through group discussions. The course will introduce students to clay types, kiln firing methods, glazing and related surfacing techniques. Presentations on the history and contemporary application of ceramic arts will contextualize studio work.
