Students will create clay objects using traditional and contemporary wheel throwing that successfully maintain their formative structures and productively reflect the artist’s intent.
Students will create various utilitarian forms on the potter's wheel including: mugs, bowls, vases, bottles, pitchers and jars. They will be glazed with careful consideration of design elements/principles of the form and fired in a high-fire kiln. These vessels will be intentful and satisfying to look at and to use. This will require the use of a personal aesthetic sensibility, creative thinking, spatial reasoning, critical thinking, and self-directed learning reflective of situational awareness.
