ART 224 - Sculptural Ceramics (1)

How does ceramics straddle the line between craft and high art? How does an artist use a traditional craft medium, clay, in order to explore sophisticated concepts/ideas? In this course, students will focus on clay as a sculptural medium. Students will learn hand-building techniques, including pinch, coil, and slab, in order to create clay sculptures. The role and processes of ceramic sculpture 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 sculptural works of art, and loading/firing kilns. Prerequisite: any 100 level Studio Art course. No S/U option. [SA]
