Explore the emotive, conceptual, and narrative potential of the sculpted animal figure. Drawing inspiration from personal experience, archetypes, and observations in the natural and manufactured world, we will begin with small figure studies, then translate these into life-sized, or ½ scale animal figures, depending on the animal, skill level and personal interest. Students will experiment with incorporating mixed-media materials into their small-fired ceramic figures to add meaning and complexity.


Ceramic sculpture, solid and slab building, red earthenware, electric fired to cone 04, mixed-media materials
