For their final project, my tableware students had to create dinner place settings for at least four people. Each setting had to have at least three pieces, and the table had to have a centerpiece. These parameters were open to interpretation to fit the theme of their dinner setting.
The sets could be hand-built, thrown, or slip-cast. The finals were presented at Ewing House, a small cozy building on RISD’s campus. What an incredible time we had presenting, eating, talking. It was the most satisfying critique I have attended. Perhaps because I saw the students grow so much in their knowledge of clay and tableware production process? Here are five presentations that show the variety of ceramic production techniques used in the class, so much for the eye to feast on.
So much talent in one class.
