In this course students will fabricate visual languages and material structures to embody building and form. A range of introductory techniques and technologies will be presented, applicable to both ceramic sculpture and functional pottery. Core techniques of wheel throwing, hand building, and basic mold making will be introduced, along with rudimentary computer modeling and parametric design. Emphasis will be placed on thinking through volume, geometry, proportion, composition, and context. Daily exercises will include technical demonstrations, sketching, form development, and surface design.
