Ceramics

The purpose of this class is for the students to learn the fundamentals of wheel thrown pottery.  The foundations of throwing on the wheel, such as centering, raising, compression and trimming are all covered.  Once the understanding and control of the wheel are established, the student will go through an experimentation process with various functional forms.  Other elements such as balance, texture and glaze design are also explored.
 
There is an opportunity also for exploration into advanced hand-building techniques such as slabs, coils and mosiacs.
