CRAM 210: Ceramics: Intermediate

Priority for this course is given to students in CRCP, ILUS and VIAR.


This course investigates hand building and wheel throwing processes to create hollow forms to be used in a variety of contexts, from functional to sculptural, with a focus on both technical and conceptual aspects of clay forming and ceramic practices. Students develop a deeper understanding and control of hand building and wheel throwing, learn to fire electric and gas kilns independently and are introduced to a broader range of glazing and surfacing materials. Students acquire practical, technical, critical and historical tools to consider ceramics within contemporary culture and current art practices. Demonstrations, discussions and presentations are regularly scheduled. Assigned and self-directed projects are developed and discussed in individual and group critiques.
