LEIR2LÞ05(ms) - Ceramics and 3D work

The course is a continuation course in ceramics and 3D work from various material. Work on utilities and ceramic sculpture is continued. Emphasis is placed on professional finish, such as foundation, handles and lids where applicable. Experiments in the mixing of glaze are performed as well as experiments with other things, such as using glass, sand etc. in finishing.
