This course provides the opportunity to explore the contemporary ceramic object in a way that broadens the practice. Projects will facilitate dialogue that locates ceramics in an expanded field of art and design. A range of applications from utilitarian object design to sculpture/installation will be encouraged. The course will support new skills in hand building, wheel throwing, surface treatment, glazing and firing technologies while encouraging imaginative practice in the medium.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- demonstrate thorough knowledge of the processes, terminology, forms and materials of ceramics practice;
- apply appropriate skills and knowledge to the making of creative ceramic based works;
- develop and evaluate concepts and processes by thinking creatively, critically and reflectively;
- work independently and/or collaboratively in a workshop environment in response to ceramic project demands; and
- reflect on social, ethical, cultural, technological and environmental issues of creative practice considering local and international perspectives.
