This course is designed to expand on the skills and ideas of the serious ceramic student. Various ceramic artist studies are examined and replicated. Students explore ceramic techniques including refining hand-building skills and advanced wheel throwing. Students deal with more complex and conceptual forms. Additionally, students are challenged to use prior ceramic knowledge and skills to create new and inventive pieces. Every effort is made to accomplish the goals and objectives in a timely and efficient manner that will allow the students the optimum opportunity to excel in their work. Over and under glazes are used, and students are required to maintain a notebook with sketches and design proposals. Students are responsible for donating a predetermined piece to the school art gallery.
