Ceramics
Spring 2023
Taught By: Andrew Robinson
Section: A

CRN: 13765

Credits: 3

This graduate level ceramic studio is open to first-time ceramic users as well as more experienced students. The course introduces low and high volume ceramic manufacturing methods used in product design through basic hands-on model making workshops. Projects explore a wide range of use. Students learn plaster mold making skills utilizing single, multi-piece, open as well as closed molds. Technical topics include accounting for clay shrinkage through calculation, appropriate selection of clay type, and both specifying as well as applying glazes. Slip casting, extruding and press molding assignments although material specific, introduce students to more universal processes in liquid and plastic state forming. Understanding ceramics will assist student comprehension of other production processes such as plastic rotational modeling or press forging. Students may incorporate 3D printing and CNC methods towards their projects.
