CRAM 202: Ceramics: Wheelthrowing

The wheel is investigated as a tool to create hollow forms to be used in a variety of contexts. Students develop an understanding and control of wheel-throwing, learn to fire electric and gas kilns, and are introduced to glazing and surfacing materials. Using clay, students acquire practical, critical and historical tools to consider ceramics and pottery within contemporary culture and current art practices. Demonstrations, discussions, and presentations are regularly scheduled. Assigned and self-directed projects are developed and discussed in critiques.

Priority is given to CRCP and VIAR students in Year 2. Students outside of the registration priority group may register/waitlist for this course as of the registration rule release date.
