This class will investigate the nature of combing non-ceramic materials with the medium. Student’s will be appropriating objects from a diverse array of sources such as antique and hobby stores, outdoor sculpture and garden centers, souvenir shops, etc. and either translating them into ceramic forms or integrating them with fabricated forms. Using this combined arrangement of forms we will explore culturally held meanings, values, imagery and how collaging imagery impacts our understanding of the art making process.
Students will be expected to find material resources outside of the classroom, in addition, students should expect to purchase drawing materials including paper, glue, charcoal, pencils, and paint in this class. We will be working with both drawing and collage to help realize ideas.
