Ceramic Sculpture: A Brief History with Emily Joy Level 1

Information Enrol



Through a series of lectures and discussion, experienced ceramicist and artist Emily Joy will take you through the development of ceramic sculpture, from early 20th Century developments in pottery and ceramics, through the tumultuous changes post war and mid-century, to contemporary ceramic sculpture. We will examine how ceramic sculpture moved away from pottery and the craft world and is now breaking new creative ground. We will be looking at questions of craft and art, aesthetics and how art develops in response to changes in the world around us.

What do I need to join?

There are no requirements for this course, other than a passion for exploring new ideas and an interest in the subject.

How will I learn?

Each week you will be offered an online live lecture - with plenty of relevant contextual information, cases studies of ceramic sculptors, and rich visual material - followed by a chance to discuss and debate points that may arise. You will be encouraged to keep notes and a sketchbook. Each week you will be given a follow-up artist or theme to briefly research and a sketchbook task to complete, leading to the creation of a sketchbook of sculptural designs. To support this, you will be offered regular tutorials and will be encouraged to post questions, ideas and work through our online platform TEAMs
