Analog/Digital Process in Ceramics (CER4107.01)

Barry Bartlett with Farhad Mirza

This course investigates the material nature of clay as a medium to create three-dimensional forms. Students will explore the material aspects of clay using a variety of mechanical/digital processes and the intersection of traditional hand building methods, including extrusions, slab rolling, slip casting and digital fabrication. Drawing will be used throughout the term to inform all conceptual and applied applications. Collaboration will be central in some of the assignments. The research collected though these assignments will be used to convey ideas of form, process, repetition, originality and appropriation. Students are expected to participate in all aspects of the ceramic process which include mixing their own clay, slip and glaze preparation, and loading and firing of kilns.
