OSPFLOR 96: Leonardo!

In this 500th anniversary year of the death of Leonardo this class will be an immersive and interactive experience with this most remarkable and complex artist and thinker. Focus on Leonardo's insights into human perception, tapping the very sounds and sights of the city that drove his fascination and inspired his work. Leonardo's conviction that the soul was the point of convergence of all the senses, prompted him to ponder how sensory information is received and processed. His writings foreshadow gestalt psychology and psychoacoustics centuries before these were studied by scientists. Leonardo's fascination with perception and emotion are manifest in his art and in his inventions. Together we will explore the city that inspired da Vinci's work, and delve into the deep implications of some of his insights and inventions as they effect contemporary art, science and life.

OSPGEN 58: Stoking an ancient flame: Ceramics intensive in Tamba

The Tamba region near Kyoto, Japan, has been a center of pottery production for over eight centuries. In many ways, medieval stoneware pottery of Tamba and Japan¿s other ¿six ancient kilns¿ can be seen as forebears of what we now know as the wabi-sabi aesthetic of Japanese tea culture. Today, surviving heirloom pieces such as jars (tsubo) and flower vessels (hanaire) serve as inspirational archetypes for surging international interest in the revival of styles and methods of traditional Japanese wood-fired ceramics (yakishime). In this Bing Overseas Seminar, Stanford students will travel to Tamba to undertake an intensive introduction to forming and firing clay. Lectures, discussions and studio demos will build a broad view of traditional aesthetic elements of yakishime, but at the same time, students will be encouraged to explore a modern individualistic approach to creative process to help them develop their own expressive forms.

Lectures, discussions and studio demos will build a broad view of traditional aesthetic elements of yakishime, but at the same time, students will be encouraged to explore a modern individualistic approach to creative process to help them develop their own expressive forms. The seminar culminates in a traditional wood firing reaching kiln temperatures in excess of 2300F, which is a process that one must experience first-hand to viscerally comprehend. A final critique of student work will probe the complex interplay of natural materials, creative vision, manual skills and serendipity in this most ancient yet vital paragon of the arts of fire.
