Intermediate Throwing (CER4104.01)

Aysha Peltz

In this course students will continue to develop their throwing skills and begin to define their own approach to using the potter’s wheel as a tool for generating forms.  They will be asked to expand their form vocabulary on the wheel and further integrate form and fired surface.  Students interested in function will be asked to look closely at those associated questions.  All students will explore the wheels possibilities as an expressive tool.   Students will be expected to have a greater participation in the kiln firing cycles. Demonstrations will include combining various wheel-throwing and hand-building processes. Discussions will address formal and conceptual issues in student work including scale, audience and contemporary relevance. Slide lectures, library visits and critiques will provide historic references and peer perspective on the projects. Prerequisite: Beginning Potter’s Wheel (or permission of instructor). Please note that this course will require additional materials to be purchased by the student.
