CR: 3
This studio course is designed to teach the fundamentals of throwing on a potter’s wheel, glazing, and firing ceramic ware. Through studio work, this course will attempt to develop and refine the student’s ability to manipulate material into form and form into a functional utilitarian object. This course will also challenge one’s aesthetic awareness through information regarding both historical and contemporary ceramic pottery. Students will develop a working vocabulary as well as a working knowledge of shop usage and safety, as well as be involved in every step of the ceramic process from mixing clay to firing kilns. Regular slide lectures, handouts, and museum research will give visual reference in areas of personal ceramic interest. This course has a course materials fee.
