Historical Inspirations | March 8
Ceramic objects have been made by humankind as long ago as 25,000 BC. People made ceremonial ceramic objects as well as functional pots as they learned no manipulate the basic elements of clay, water and fire. This encyclopedic history is both varied and deep as it tells a complex cultural history across time and continents.
During this four-week intensive workshop participants will seek to invigorate their own work through a process of research, looking and making. Students will be asked to develop a Personal Image Bank as well as a personal Sketch Journal. Visual Presentations, group discussions and critique format will be used. All students will be encouraged to work outside of class to get the fullest benefit of this intensive four-week experience.
OPTIONAL FIRING SESSION
In addition, there will be an opportunity to fire student work in the Soda/Wood kiln at the Carolina Pottery. This firing will be optional, $125 additional firing cost and will require full participation and commitment from each maker. Details will be discussed at the initial class meeting.
