Advanced Practice: Ceramics
Clay has a quiet power. Delicately precious, yet incredibly strong, it enlivens our sense of touch, yet heightens our sense of caution. This everyday material is a part of our collective consciousness. It holds our coffee in the morning today just as it held food and water in ancient Mesopotamia. Ceramic decorates our homes and our bodies. This rich history provides a backdrop to frame contemporary investigations into ritual, objecthood and artistic expression. This course emphasizes the unique sculptural processes and materiality of clay. Techniques will include hand building, slip casting, image transfers and wheel throwing. Students are encouraged to experiment with different strategies, including installation work, mixed-media projects, and a variety of experimental ceramic techniques.
