CERA 398B/4A

Clay is involved in all aspects of living in the city. Ranging between the scale of architecture and the intimacy of personal space, ceramics can be both functional and decorative. In this course we will examine the way clay currently exists in the city, indoors and out, above ground and under, while expanding on its relationship to the built environment. We will be searching for new and meaningful ways to enhance the urban environment of Montreal through temporary site-specific ceramic art interventions in public areas on the Concordia campus. Clay offers a particular advantage as a material for public art due to its of versatility, durability, and historic use. Mold making, slip casting and low fire finishing will be the primary techniques demonstrated. This course offers the opportunity to focus both theoretically and technically on a semester-long project comprised of several phases that build to a final installation. No prerequisite courses in ceramics required.
