Living World in Ceramics

Representations of the Living World: The Figural In Clay
In this class we will explore making representations of the living world using clay to make kiln-fired ceramic sculptures. These sculptural creations will be oriented toward (but not limited to) the human and animal kingdoms. Emphasis will focus on making these representations contemporary in style and content. Technical methods will center on coil-building and solid sculpting of low-fire clay to make large-scale pieces. Methods of glazing complex surfaces and color effects will be taught. Strategies of assembling fired-ceramic pieces using wood, metal and epoxies will be investigated to create large-scale accretions. There will be a $100 materials fee for this class. These supplies will be purchased by the instructor.
