A studio-based unit which introduces students to the making of figurative objects. The study explores the reasons for the re-emergence of the figurative genre in the Postmodern era. The human figure is central to developing ideas, meanings and appearances dealing with the satirical, heroic, irreverent, mythical, popular, political and ironic. Students are able to develop a number of skills in modelling, coil and slab building, extruding and press moulding. In addition, various ceramic surface treatments together with a range of firing techniques are practised.
