CRAM 221: Ceramics: Mold-Making

Mold-making and slip-casting facilitate the exploration of reproduction and seriality. This class introduces a variety of materials (plaster, clay, rubber, etc.), tools and processes in order to develop an understanding of the potential of molds in artistic expression. One-part and multi-parts molds are realized and used to create original works. At the conceptual, formal and esthetic levels, issues of series, spatial reversibility, appropriation, mirror image, convex/concave alternates are presented and explored. Clay formulation and slip-casting complement the course. Studio work, demonstrations, researches and presentations, discussions and critiques form an integral part of this class.

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.
