Ceramics

Ceramics will introduce three basic processes of clay: pinch, coil and slab, in addition to learning how to throw on the electric and kick wheel. Equal time will be dedicated to the potter’s wheel and the basic hand-building skills needed to produce ceramic ware. Students will study and participate in the process of glazing and firing ceramics ware in an ancient wood-fired six chamber Noborigama climbing kiln located on Woolman campus. Students have access to the studio during free time. Each student will also be asked to make three soup bowls to be donated to the Empty Bowl fundraiser for the homeless.
