Stepping away from the traditional hand-building and wheel methods, in this course students will produce sculptural works using mold-making and slip cast as the primary techniques (other tools available in the ceramic room will be introduced and may be used to combine techniques). Students will work on individual projects tailored to their interests and experience. Critiques will be an integral part of the course. Throughout, students will be encouraged to develop new approaches to their work. Slide presentations on contemporary ceramic art and artists will be included. NOTE: The studio fee includes safety equipment, hand tools, kiln use and access to only the ceramics workshop during posted open access hours, based on facility availability. All other materials must be purchased by the student. The ceramics workshop cannot accommodate large volumes of work due to class loads, shelf space and kiln space. Continuing education students taking a ceramics course are limited to 15 reasonably sized pieces per semester. All work that is to be fired must be accompanied with a firing tag.
