ART 142 Pottery I (3 credits)
We will retrace some of the more prominent periods in ceramic history including the historical pottery from Greece, China, and Egypt. Students will make vessels using the pottery wheel and various hand building techniques. In this class we explore a variety of functional pottery forms including cups, bowls, vases and pitchers. Students learn to make, glaze and fire their own work. A historical research project is required. This course may be taken as an independent study.
