Industrial Ceramics Minor
A minor in Industrial Ceramics is an interdisciplinary offering between Material Art & Design and Industrial Design. Using ceramics and industrial design practices and methods, students explore the possibilities of ceramic production, including concept exploration, form development, prototyping in 3D drawing and rapid prototype printing for clay. Much of the students' time will be spent in the ceramic studio developing models and experiencing the processes of clay from inception to fired works. Emphasis will be on a small batch production that includes developing design criteria, formulating designs for multiple productions, and considering manufacturing and marketing strategies.
