ARTS 3830: Ceramic Sculpture
January 19 - February 5, 2021

Throughout the Fall 2020 semester, instructor Chotsani Elaine Dean presented a series of explorative prompts that challenged students to engage with ceramics sculpture in a variety of ways. This exhibition represents major projects from the course including one in which students selected adjectives to inform sculptural work with coiling, another where students layered two different clay bodies—exploring relationships between surface and form, and a third in which students worked remotely using oil-based Sculpy clay to create works that tell a story through digital media. Artists in the exhibition include Chotsani Elaine Dean, Stefanie Amundsen, Drew Hansen, Kate Johnson, Sam Maret, Jason Nawrocki, Beatrice Peters, Olivia Rosley, Ciel Rossmiller, and Sumayo Salah. Learn more about ARTS 1801: Intro to Wheel Throwing & Handbuilding and ARTS 5810: Advanced Ceramics now being offered with Chotsani for Spring 2021.
