The Language of Material and Process (CER4250.01)

Barry Bartlett

This course will investigate the unique, material nature of clay as a sculptural medium.

Students will explore the material aspects of clay such as dryness, wetness, mass and scale using a variety of mechanical processes that include extrusion, slab rolling, mold casting and experimental digital ceramic printing. In doing so, the pieces created will be used to convey ideas of form and process as both the vocabulary and meaning expressed.

Students are expected to participate in all aspects of the ceramic process, which include, but are not limited to, mixing their own clay, slip and glaze preparation, and loading and firing of kilns.

Prerequisites: Two art classes or two ceramic classes and/or permission of the instructor.
