Domestic Ceramics: Exploring the Useful Object
0.50 Credit(s)
This course introduces students to a variety of forming processes, including modelmaking, plaster mouldmaking, slip-casting and handbuilding, which will be used to develop forms for small batch production of functional ceramic wares. Students will be challenged to imagine, create and manufacture inventive, useful solutions to age-old functions such as eating, drinking and storage. The design and ergonomics of bowls, cups, plates and other tabletop items that have become an essential part of our domestic landscape will be the formal focus of the course. Attention will also be given to appropriate finishing and glazing methods. The course will be delivered using presentations, demonstrations, in-class work, assignments and critiques.
