University of Florida Cermaics

My Fall 2007 Graduate assignment was to create a new website for the ceramic department. It is not currently on the official server but can be found at University Of Florida Ceramics


This semester I am teaching "ART 2930 Ceramics for non-Art Majors"

"Course Description:
Meeting Time: Tuesday, Thursday Periods 8-10
Credits Hours: 03

This course is an introduction to ceramic materials and processes. We will investigate historical and contemporary ceramic artists; explore aesthetic issues; and use 3D design principles as vehicles for our personal expression. The projects investigate the concepts of form, space, color, light, texture, composition, and structure. Low fire technology, hand building techniques, throwing techniques, an introduction to glazing, and electric kiln firing processes support the development of an understanding of 3D fundamentals."
