CR1205: Introduction to Ceramics

This course is open to all skill levels. New students learn basic hand-building techniques and also learn to work on the wheel. Intermediate and advanced students focus on expressive development while building technical skills in construction, glazing, and firing. Lectures and demonstrations cover ceramic sculpture and pottery, glaze application, kiln use, and firing methods. Field trips to contemporary and historical ceramic exhibitions occur throughout the semester. Critiques address craftsmanship and personal expression.

This course is occasionally cross-listed graduate level as CR5205: Introduction to Ceramics. Additional coursework is required for graduate credit.
