WOOD KILN PRACTISING, TOWARD ARTISTIC AND TECNICAL IMPROVEMENT IN CERAMİC ART
This project has been done by a senior student at Anadolu University School for Handicapped Ceramic Department. Form making by using wheel is a shaping method in ceramic art. Wood firing is one of the oldest methods in ceramic art. Ceramic art requires not only artistic talent but also glaze technology, firing methods and technical knowledge. This project covers these three ceramic technics in its design and application. As a shaping method wheel, and as a glaze technic, ash glaze has been used. Also wood firing has been selected. In this project two main goals are aimed. One of them is developing artistic skills of the student by using wheel throwing for making unique works. Another one is to gain technical skills by giving her an opportunity to build her own kiln. In this project, this student designed and completed artistic objects by using wheel. She also used her ceramic kiln for her works.
