Owens Community College in Toledo holds a Ceramics 1 class. This class is just a basic introduction to ceramic forms with emphasis on production by hand methods and an introduction to the potters wheel. Consideration of the nature and possibilities of clay and introductory glaze testing, as well as firing procedures for bisque and glaze ware.

This class’s instructor is Lindsay ScyptaFisher. Her goal is to inform her students how to create beautiful pieces with clay and learn to tell a story with those pieces of artwork. During this time, the students are working on their narrative projects where they create a story with the clay and they are also finishing up their mug projects.

Throughout the semester, they learn how to use the throwing wheel, blaze their clay projects in the kiln, and glaze the final product along with sieving the glaze and learning new techniques.

Nicki Mills observing her instructor’s experiment with slip printing in Ceramics 1 at Owens Community College in Perrysburg, OH on Oct. 19. Nicki and her professor wanted to see if they could try something new for future projects.
