The Object in Context


Anders Ruhwald & Marie Hermann
CER 631 001
3 credit hours, 2 weeks
Lab Fee $150

This course will focus on ceramic object making. The word “object” has been specifically chosen, as it is neutral to the divide between the utilitarian tool and the sculptural form. In this class we will view these categories as a continuum to see how these ideas may inform one another. Central to this will be a discussion of how objects relate to each other and the possible sites in which they exists such as home, gallery, or landscape. Each session will have presentations, discussions, technical demonstrations, and critiques integrated into a focused, process-based studio experience.
