APPPHYS 10AX: The Expressive Vessel: An Immersive Introduction to Clay

Students will learn to make and to analyze functional ceramic forms, with a focus on wheel-thrown pottery. Studio time will be dedicated to the acquisition and refinement of shaping, marking/glazing and finishing skills; supplementary lectures and discussions will be used to explore the aesthetic range of contemporary studio ceramics as well as major historical traditions in clay. No prior experience is necessary, but instructors will work individually with students at all levels of ability to make this Arts Intensive experience both challenging and rewarding. Each student will produce functional ware (e.g. dishes, cups, vases, et cetera) suitable for use and display and will give a final class presentation on a selection of their most personally expressive work.
