Class description

Explore the art of pottery, using the methods you learned and then coming up with your own ideas.

Class outline

Students will design a project and then execute their design in clay. This is a time for exploration and for you to choose the type of Pottery or Ceramics you wish to make. Become an Explorer and try different techniques you have learned so far. Combine two techniques with one. We will also explore molds and how to make your own molds in the last class.

Class clay, glazes and firing are provided as part of the supplies fee. Due to the size of the studio, glazing your fired pieces will happen in “The Great Cover-Up!” class.

You may purchase your own clay, but it must fire to a cone 6. If you choose to purchase your own clay, due to limited space you will have to bring your own clay to class and then take it home the same day. Note: The clay comes in 25 lb bags.

Plagiarism/Ethics

Plagiarism is the outright copying of another person’s ideas and artwork which is stealing and violates the right of the artist who created the work and the artist’s control of the work. Using various images found in a print or online for inspiration, copying from reference photos that you the artist has taken, significantly altering the original art so it becomes uniquely yours without violating the original artist’s rights, are not copying or violating the rights of others.

“Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit” — Aristotle (384 BC – 322 BC) Greek Philosopher
