3DCR202 Ceramic Handbuilding 3 cr.


A studio elective course, introduces students to ideas and methods used in the contemporary field of ceramic object-making. Projects are designed to have students consider clay for both its fine art and design potential. Projects use a variety of tools including the slab roller, extruder and plaster molds, as well as traditional methods of building and throwing on the potter’s wheel and address idea development. Projects also address color and surface and their relationships to forms. Students will choose methods of finishing work in gas or electric kilns, using a combination of studio and commercial glazes.
