Fashioning Utensils for Lifestyle ︱Exploring Ceramics: Shape and Form – Intermediate (Monday)

COURSE FEATURES
Ceramic utensils are a mainstay in our lives, providing both functional and aesthetic value to our day-to-day. While its ubiquitousness attests to its popularity, it may also make us forget the skillset and artistry behind every piece of stoneware.  

 This course combines theory and practice for a complete immersion in understanding the concept of “form follows function” and applying it to the creation of ceramics. With this knowledge, participants will design ceramic utensils to optimise functionality. The in-depth exploration will comprise discussions and practice, and cover production aspects of pinching to drawing to surface treatment. 

 Students will:
– Explore the functions of different utensils and analyse each according to its usage and one’s lifestyle
– Examine the relationship between the ceramic’s purpose and its shape
– Test the practical conditions of various shapes by observing and recording through practice and hands-on experience
– Make multiple ceramics in various shapes 

 Learn how to shape-shift ceramics for best functionality — register today.
