Prerequisite: ARTS 502. (Second semester/3 credits/lab fee)
Applied three-dimensional ceramic design and construction covering a variety of methods of hand-forming with clay to take a sculptural direction. Techniques include eastern coil, slab construction, modeling the figure, the portrait bust, structural strength concepts for sculpture and firing considerations for sculptural forms. Individual sketches and projects, including critiques, serve to aid in the development of exhibition criteria with emphasis on technique, finishing and firing choices.
