About this Class
What is ceramic sculpture?
For centuries, people have used clay to make pots and statues. So how are we to understand the genesis of ceramic sculpture in contemporary art? Its modern life begins with abstraction, but the story doesn’t end there. Ceramic sculpture opens exciting doors to expressions of embodiment and architectural space, calling attention to the creative forces of nature as well as the very status of sculpture today.
In this five-week workshop, Kate Butler, a ceramic sculptor with an MFA in Fine Arts/MS Art History from the Pratt Institute, will lead presentations on the origins and predominant themes of ceramic sculpture in tandem with exercises to inform and inspire an artistic practice in clay. This class is suitable for students with some hand-building experience already.
