As time goes on, my research aim is getting slightly preened and pruned. My aim still remains to explore the nature of the relationship between the making method and the final outcome; but I have decided to specify my query further by investigating the making methods of throwing and slip casting only.
These two particular methods of creating ceramic objects have significant conflict in their nature of making. The diversity and manipulation of clay during these processes has divided the ceramic community and I want to explore the roots of these issues.
This research will take place largely through studio based practice and experiential learning. By attempting to produce a range of functional ceramics both on the wheel and by using plaster work I will be able to judge the success and suitability of the objects after firing.
