Ceramics: Nature/Structure

Course No. CER 251-351-451  Credits: 3.0

In this class we will be looking to nature for inspiration. The natural world and its infinite structures, patterns, and phenomena are an inexhaustible source for visual artists. We will make use of this vast resource, bringing traces of what can be discovered and integrated into our clay work. Both form and surface will be studied and utilized and we will learn to fire a variety of kilns. There will be lectures on contemporary and historical art and design in clay. Required of all Ceramic Majors. Open to all.
