This upper-level ceramics course addresses advanced problems in studio practice and the production of ceramic art. The course goes beyond basic technical skills and aesthetic concepts, extending them toward more sophisticated levels of execution, invention, expression and content. Through critique, the course aims to develop the quality of students’ work by addressing matters of form, technique, originality, concept, and audience. Classes are organized around five extended assignments that address a group of formal problems: with the completion of each project, the class and instructor will focus upon the critique of students’ projects. We will prepare for the critiques with short readings and writing to enhance discussions and sharpen our understanding of ceramics in twenty-first century art.
