This class will broadly consider what characteristics make for interesting functional designs in ware for dining. Projects will hone in on the different forms from bowls and cups to platters and serving dishes. Instruction will cover basic through advanced throwing techniques designed to get students expanding their scale and experimenting with altering off the wheel. Projects will also cover the use of plaster and bisque molds. Our student show will culminate in a potluck dinner featuring serving ware created by the class participants. Beginners may register with permission from the registrar. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Monica Wilson earned a BFA from Eastern Michigan University in 2003, where she studied ceramics and sculpture. She spent time in India as a resident artist in both Jaipur and Balasinor learning about local and historical pottery techniques and practices. Her ceramic work has been exhibited throughout Michigan and in Upstate New York. Her most recent exhibitions include Pewabic Pottery and Muskegon Museum of Art. In 2015 Wilson was the Artist-in-Residence at Maker Works, which involved manipulating images in CAD and CAM programs to then generate three-dimensional forms using a CNC router. Her current interests include functional pottery paired with abstract ceramic forms designed for the wall. Wilson works both from her home- studio and at the Potters Guild in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
