Course description: Enjoy your lunch while traveling through time with ancient to contemporary ceramics. This seminar style course will provide a series of six presentations on ceramic art history. We will examine the development of clay techniques, kilns, and surface treatments across the world from the "Porcelain Highway" to the "Funk Movement" of the 70'sand beyond. Artists will find inspiration in both form, surface, and some of the more interesting stories around pivotal moments in our medium's history.  (Photo: Staffordshire) 6 classes, No Lab.
