Class Description:

This course will provide students with a foundation for working with ceramics in the sculptural realm. In this session we will examine different ways of generating sculpture with clay. Coil building, slab construction, and reductive techniques will be covered. Traditional surface design processes will be shown including, water carving, burnishing, slip decoration, inlaid line, and various underglaze/glaze applications. While traditional ceramic processes will be the focus of this class students are encouraged to make/finish objects with mixed media materials such as plastic, rubber, wood, metal, foam, or found objects. This class is open to all levels.

Instructor Bio:
Gustav Hamilton’s sculptures and paintings exist as auto-fictitious objects where real-life events merge with fictional narrative. In this space of total authorship, family heirlooms have as much relevance as his hopes and dreams about imagined encounters in the art world. Gustav currently also teaches at the 92nd Street Y. Prior to moving to New York City, he was a visiting professor at Colorado State University. He received a BFA from the University of Montana and an MFA from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University.
