Ceramics Courses

Internshp-Ceramics

Course No. CER 399-499  Credits: 0.0

Elective credit can be given on a case-by- case basis for an internship developed by student through the career services office, with advance permission of instructor and head of department.

Language of Materials

Course No. CMC 201  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Brent Kee Young | Gretchen Goss

The second course in the Core explores commonalities and differences in the "language of materials." Emphasis is placed on visual and conceptual aspects of materials and material process. This makes for interesting investigations and explorations within and across mediums. Historically materials and processes are connected with the evolution of function and meaning. The class will explore inherent physical properties that may bring content and depth to ideas borne of the medium itself. Students continue the process of research and ideation using these common themes, and explore through experimentation. Each student’s individual voice begins to emerge. Fundamental techniques will be explored and practiced, stressing the practice of the maker. Idea books/sketchbooks will continue to be worked on as an important part of the creative process. Offered spring.

Multiples in Enamel

Course No. MET 246-346-446  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Gretchen Goss
Prerequisite(s) Enamel: Image, Surface, Relief | Enamel: Image, Surface, Relief | Enamel: Image, Surface, Relief

This course will focus on the use of enamel through the use of multiples: series, limited edition and production. Beginning through advanced level students will explore the medium through these models of studio production. Processes covered will be those easily adapted to working in multiples and not exclude any techniques. Prerequisite: MET 245 Enamel: Image, Surface, Relief.

Surface + Image

Course No. CMC 300  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Gretchen Goss

The third course of the Craft core explores the integration of digital technologies, imaging and three-dimensional modeling, new materials and processes, and the connections with ceramics, glass, and jewelry + metals. The fall semester brings a focus to the application and integration of 2D digital imaging on surfaces and forms in clay, enamel, glass, and metal. Projects build on the foundation skill set and encourage the use of digital technology for the development of image, pattern, and texture. Students utilize and develop their skills with imaging software and explore how it translates into various materials and surfaces. Offered fall.

The Printed Image in Enamel

Course No. MET 248-348-448  Credits: 3.0

The focus of this course will be on the use of the printed image with the medium of enamel. Photographs, photocopies and digitally produced and enhanced images will be transferred to the medium through acid etching, silk-screening, decals and photographic transfers. The emphasis will be on the use of enamel on the two-dimensional surface, although those with metal forming experience may explore three-dimensional forms in combination with the processes above.

Three-Dimensonal Forms in Enamel

Course No. MET 247-347-447  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Gretchen Goss
Prerequisite(s) Enameling: Three-Dimensional Forms with Enamel

The emphasis of this course will be applications of enamel on the three-dimensional form. Enamel used in functional, decorative, jewelry or sculptural context may be explored. Metal forming and fabrication techniques that apply specifically to the use of enamel will be introduced. Beginning enameling skills required for three-dimensional forms will be covered.
