ART 223 - Utilitarian Ceramics (1)

What is the “language” of pottery and how does it differ from sculpture? What details must artists consider as they create objects for the purpose of utility? In this course, students will use clay to explore pottery forms and the role of functionality today. Students will learn both wheel-throwing and hand-building techniques in order to create utilitarian ceramic objects. Both historical and contemporary pottery will be explored through studio projects, art historical readings/presentations, and individual research. Students will be involved in every step of the ceramic process from mixing clay, forming and glazing functional works of art, and loading/firing kilns. Prerequisite: any 100 level Studio Art course. No S/U option. [SA]
