The Final Project is designed to be an open-ended project that gives students the ability to explore their individual creativity. This project should act as a reflection of what the student has learned over the course of two quarters in Ceramics. Students are expected to utilize a number of techniques and construction methods, such as additive, subtractive, slab, pinch and coil. If feasible, students will be allowed to produce a portfolio of wheel-thrown pottery for their final project. Students are expected to research multiple artists and/or styles for inspiration in the development of this project. All research should be documented in the course sketchbook.
In preparation for the final project, students will be expected to spend several days in class researching artists and techniques which will serve as inspiration for their own designs. Additionally, students should fill at least 4-5 pages in their sketchbooks with preliminary drawings of their teapot design.
Examples will be posted soon. The project rubric is attached at the bottom of the page.
