CER2011 Ceramics I


This course will ground students in the fundamentals of ceramics and introduce them to clay techniques, tools, materials, and visual language as experienced through hand building and wheel throwing. Students will explore several significant genres such as Japanese ceramics, Bennington potters, pottery of the Southwest, as well as contemporary artists working in the medium. Students will also take advantage of the rich resource of potters in Windham County by visiting other studios and hearing guest lectures from established potters. Students will develop individual goals in formal and non-traditional approaches with guidance from the instructors. A major component of the course is for students to take responsible ownership of the studio space, expressed through student commitment to work independently, to honor all safety procedures, and to keep the space in good condition.
