Welcome to Ceramics 1 Fall 2016

In this ceramics class students learn the basic techniques used in ceramics and apply them to assigned projects. The techniques you will learn come from a rich and full ceramics tradition dating back as far as 20,000 years. We will be working with pinch, coil, slab, wheel throwing methods in this class, as well as a variety of visual surface techniques. While process and understanding clay as a material are important, getting a novice understanding of historic and contemporary ceramics are essential to this class.
