The intermediate wheel class will delve into beakers, vase's, and pitchers through weekly assignments using the pottery wheel. Just as a poet contemplates the nuances of language, the class will consider the aesthetic vocabulary of volume, material and physical traces. Students will make and use hand-made brushes as one means to investigate the interrelationship of form and surface decoration. The nuance of slip and glaze application will be explored; projects will be fired in a high temperature gas kiln. At times this course may be cross-tallied at the Introductory level as CCR 1253. Students with prior experience may register for CCR 2253 if they have already completed CCR 1253 Introduction to the Wheel.
