VART2546 Ceramics: Hand-building Techniques
- Medium of Instruction:
One of the oldest and most important tools in the ceramics studio is the potter’s-wheel. The variety of vessel forms that can be made on the potters-wheel is inexhaustible. This is a skill course suitable for students wishing to learn the skill of making vessels for aesthetic expression on the electric potter’s-wheel. A primary emphasis will be placed on acquiring wheel-throwing skills; guided practice sessions will be preceded by frequent demonstrations of wheel-throwing and glazing techniques. Conceptual and aesthetic aspects of strong functional work will be examined along with the historical development and uses of both Western and Asian utilitarian pottery.
In addition to learning the skills and process of making functional studio pottery, students must investigate relationship of details and functions, and the connection of these object-forms with the makers and users. Students will create a small body of related functional vessels that reflect the students own unique style and personal expression.
