Applied three-dimensional ceramic design and construction covering a variety of methods of
hand-forming with clay to take a sculptural direction. Techniques include eastern coil, slab
construction, modeling the figure, the portrait bust, structural strength concepts for sculpture

critiques, serve to aid in the development of exhibition criteria with emphasis on technique, finishing and firing choices.
