Ceramic Rituals

Ryan Ferguson

This studio will examine ceramic manufacturing processes through the lens of cultural food traditions and ritual. Students will be exposed to the technical process of slip-casting, from initial modeling and mold-making, to casting and glazing. We will be producing 3D-printed models to use for casting, blending contemporary digital fabrication with a centuries old manufacturing technique.

The studio will use this method as a means to explore perceptions of food culture, both from the past and present. Students will design vessels, dinnerware, serving platters and tools that reexamine, augment, celebrate a particular food tradition or ritual and create a novel user experience.
