Students in this class will learn how to develop their own personal style and voice as a maker through one on one meetings with instructor and dialogue with their class peers (small scale crits). Demonstrations of advanced techniques will be given upon request. Presentations of contemporary and historical ceramics will be given throughout the class to use as reference points for student's own work.
Students must have experience working with clay for at least a year before taking this class. The class is designed to meet the student where they are and challenge them further to identify and execute the work the student wants to make. Be ready to engage in a rich ten-week discussion centered around all things clay. Sketchbooks highly recommended!
SPECIAL NOTE: This is a small format class - max of 8 students for more intensive instruction - with specific start and stop dates.
Includes 25 lbs clay, all tools, one personal 12" x 36" shelf, glazes, oxide washes and bisque and glaze firings. Students who use large amounts of clay may incur additional firing charges.
