ART255 :  Ceramics II

This course is for the student with previous pottery/ceramics training. Students participate in an in-depth study of skill-building techniques, materials, tools, design, firing and glaze applications. Further visual literacy is developed through continuing study and application of the principles and elements of design. Students create an equal balance of both hand-built and wheel-thrown projects, utilize various techniques of decorating and glazing, and evaluate student and historical vessels. Emphasis is on the implementation of design elements and their application to pottery form. Decorating, glazing, kiln firing and glaze firing theory will be covered. ART254, ART255 and ART256 are sequential courses.
