ART202: Ceramics I: Form + Function

The Exeter Clay Studio introduces students to methods used to create unique sculpture and tableware.

The Exeter Clay Studio introduces students to methods used to create unique sculpture and tableware. Developing their creative concepts, students will throw on the potter's wheel, hand build forms, and create a series of pieces over the course of the term, which may include objects such as plates, cups, bowls, teapots and sculpture. Drawing inspiration from contemporary ceramic artists, the class will explore a variety of techniques for surface design, glazing and firing. The teacher will offer innovative and sophisticated approaches that will provide further opportunity for experimentation. All tableware is glazed with materials safe for food, microwave and the dishwasher.
