Ceramics

  • Ceramics is the art of making objects with clay and then firing them in a kiln at very high temperatures.  SA  students enrolled in ceramics are required to make several handbuilt ceramic pots, bisque fire them, glaze them and glaze fire them.  Handbuilt techniques include a fist pot, coil pot,  pinch pot and slab pot.  Each student is required to sculpt a clay animal and make a working ocarina (a clay whistle or flute).  Students also have the opportunity to work on the pottery wheel and form hand thrown pots.

    2009 -2010 school year marks the return of the ceramics program in the SA Art Department.
