The Hand as Tool (CER2317.01)

Anina Major

Clay responds directly to touch, retains memory and is forced through the dynamic process of firing to fix a point in time. This class will introduce students to a variety of hand-building techniques to construct sculptural and/or utilitarian forms. Students will develop their skills by practicing techniques demonstrated in class and presentations on traditional and non-traditional ceramic history. Through making students skills will increase, granting more confidence, and allowing more control over the objects they wish to realize.
