Clay Building II
In this class, students will build upon the hand-building techniques introduced and worked with in Clay I. Students will then use these techniques to create a variety of more sophisticated projects. Students who’ve mastered hand building techniques will also be introduced to working with the Potter’s Wheel, and learn how to throw pots. Art history continues to be important in this class. Students will view exemplary works by contemporary ceramicists, as well as functional ancient pieces from varied cultures, and will discuss untraditional industrial uses for ceramics.
