This class ran for the first time last year and was very successful. I saw
a lot of good work come from it and the participants seemed quite satisfied.
We even had someone move up here temporarily from the Carolinas to take this

There are still spaces in this year's seminar (thus this message, posted on
behalf of the studio).

Architectural Ceramics Studio-Seminar
offered at Radcliffe Ceramics Studio
Boston, MA
Open to artists and designers working in various fields, this seminar
integrates the development of individual projects with demonstrations,
design critiques, site visits, slide lectures, and readings on
historical and contemporary architectural ceramics. Students are
presented with a variety of opportunities to develop their skills as
designers and artists who can work effectively with architects and
clients to create ceramic sculpture and tile installations in public
and private settings. Presentations by artists, architects,
historians, and fellow studio participants expose students to a rich
variety of sensibilities and approaches to creative brainstorming,
design, fabrication, and installation. Students are expected to
develop projects for specific sites and clients and to give two
presentations during each term.
