Exploit the visual, metaphorical, emotional, personal, political, and social impact ornamentation can carry.
Studio 3680 Low Fire Ceramics focuses on earthenware clay and electric kiln firing with an exploration of form and surface, including techniques such as terra sigillata, pit firing, neo-majolica, and the development of colour and depth in low-fire ceramics. Acknowledging both the ancient history of earthenware and its popularity in contemporary practice, examples of historical and current low-fire practice are shown and discussed, providing a jumping off point for technical and conceptual investigation. Students are encouraged to push and subvert the tradition of ornamentation in ceramics to make relevant, provocative, and challenging work.
