Program Ceramics II is the core course of year 2. Evaluation of the participants’ progress is both continuous (the responsibility of each teacher) and formally confirmed, twice a year, with the presence of the head of department. A consistent and diversified body of work will become, all throughout the year, the participants’ individual portfolio. Distinctive characteristics of Ceramics II in the 2nd semester: emphasis on the various techniques for production of work of larger dimensions with porcelain slip; construction with molds; molding with slab, assembling and/or piling; finishing with glazes and textures; emphasis on experimentation and concentration as conditions of rigor and progress. Firing of the pieces takes place during classes so as to demonstrate how to handle the kiln and promote the participants’ autonomy in a near future.
