Class Description:
This class will explore the broad field of ceramic sculpture. Students will be taught hand-building techniques including coiling, working with hard and soft slabs, carving, and using sprig molds. Surface decoration techniques will be taught using glaze and underglaze. Technical demonstrations will be based in conceptual inquires that explore the potential meanings of ceramic objects, including notions of functionality, tactility, translation, and absurdity. This will be a workshop style course where we will learn from each others’ experimentation and imagination. Students are encouraged to work boldly, and to develop their own unique directions. Basic ceramics experience is helpful, but this class is open to all levels.
