CCR 1253. Introduction to the Wheel. 3 Credits.
Students are introduced to using the wheel to create functional pottery. The class covers wedging, throwing, trimming, and glazing for simple forms. Assignments explore the poetic presence that results from the character of clay, the manipulation of form, and the qualities of glazed surfaces. Weekly assignments focus on bowls and vertical forms with a focused glazing/slipping palette. At times this course may be cross-tallied at the intermediate level as CCR 2253. Students who have completed CCR 1253 may wish to register for CCR 2253.
