You will have an option for your final project.
1) Ceiling/Wall/Floor - Installation art is an important facet of contemporary ceramics. For this final you will create an installation using ceramics. You must understand and pay attention to the space in which your are creating. You will engage the two of the three options - Floor/Ceiling, Ceiling/Wall, Floor/Wall or all three (if you choose). You can use mixed media in this project. However, I want you to think about what you are doing and WHY. Write a proposal ( a one page of what your ideas are and how you plan to proceed). Keep in mind that you can use unconventional spaces (not crit/gallery walls... a true installation in my opnion considers and pays attention to the conditions of the space as conceptual material components to the work.... Work that is just hung is still sculpture!)
2) Project of your own design: Perhaps you have had an idea all semester that you were so wanting to try out. Now is the time. You must write a One Page Proposal describing your idea, what you plan to use (materials) , how you plan to fire (clay and temperature) and what the Conceptual Framework is.
3) Project 2.0 - Maybe one of the projects you already completed this semester really engaged you. Perhaps you are really excited to work with the narrative/figurative again. Maybe you are excited about handbuilt tableware, or want to try performance/process. Revisting ideas is one of the best ways to push that work forward. You can choose to do this. However, you will not be remaking your original piece, instead you will be making a second to a series. Write a one page proposal that describes your ideas and how you plan to execute them.
** Remember, this is a handbuilding class. Your projects should be primarily handbuilt. ** (ie if your are going to make a new tableware set, you will NOT be using the wheel)
Also, this is your final - you will have the most time to work on this- it should be evident in your final piece.
