COURSE DESCRIPTION

In this course traditional handbuilding techniques using soft and hard slab as well as coil construction will be utilized to create functional, non-functional and sculptural forms. Students are encouraged to work at their own pace and to develop their own unique directions. Through discussion and demonstration students will explore form, imagery and narrative. Learning how to make templates, lidded boxes, texture rollers, handles, spouts, and decorative trays, are just a few examples that may be demonstrated in class. Students will discover how various techniques can be combined to achieve exciting new exteriors on their pieces. Surface treatment can include sgraffito, water etching, slip trailing, carving, and decorating with underglazes. The main goal will be to improve clay skills by refreshing and energizing the student’s approach to clay.
