This six-session course encourages investigation of the relationships between object, narrative, art, and design. Each student will create a three-item collection of three-dimensional ceramic forms, embellished with two-dimensional glaze treatments based on original drawings. Group discussions will highlight other forms of sequential storytelling and both historical and contemporary artists working in this tradition. Demonstrations of building and glazing techniques and critique sessions will support students in their exploration and contemporary application of the materials.
