Enrol in Figurative Sculpture & Smoke Firing
Course Code: ARTS2454
Not all pieces will be fired during this course.,
Delve into the alchemy of smoke firing, an ancient technique that will be explored in a contemporary way. Discover the painterly effects of burnishing, fire, natural materials, and smoke. With a project emphasis on developing personal artistic language, instruction will direct a conceptual exploration of the human form. Proportion and form will be addressed but discovering your voice in clay and creating personally meaningful work is the goal. The dramatic and unpredictable results of sawdust firing will initially be explored with tiles and maquettes to demonstrate possibilities for the sculptural pieces. Two or three small pieces each will be fired but larger, subsequent pieces will not.
