Students will be introduced to using the wheel to create functional pottery. The class will cover wedging, throwing, trimming, and glazing for simple forms. Assignments will explore the poetic presence that results from the character of clay, the manipulation of form, and the qualities of glazed surfaces. Weekly assignments will focus upon bowls and vertical forms with a focused glazing/slipping palette. In some terms, this course may be cross-tallied at the undergraduate level as CCR 1250 and at the graduate level as CCR 5250. Additional coursework will be required to earn graduate credit.
