Ceramics & Sculpture 3


This course will build on the experiences and techniques introduced in Ceramics & Sculpture 2. Students will have the opportunity to focus on either wheel-thrown or hand-built ceramics and will be encouraged to develop a personal style with their work. More extensive investigations into advanced ceramic forming techniques, firing processes, and glaze chemistry will be covered. Students enrolling in this course should have a strong and consistent work ethic and a willingness to complete assignments that demonstrate growth in the ability to conceptualize, problem solve, and appropriately apply glaze and surface decoration to enhance and embellish their forms. Students will also be required to assist with basic studio maintenance including: clay recycling and mixing, glaze formulation, kiln loading and unloading. Students will have the opportunity to experience a variety of firing processes.
