Mastering the Ceramic Practice: Errecting Defences Against Some Areas of Latent Assumptions
Chris Echeta and Ngozi Ezema
 
Abstract: At every point along the path of pottery production, the practice demands a closely-knitted follow-up both at the material and technical levels. Along this, same path also lie the requirements of personal attention right from the clay deposit to determine its quality in terms of plasticity and clay content. Although, these are professional facts, this study has not spent its energy on them. Rather, the researchers have used this platform to pinpoint and emphasize those areas that confront studio practice at the levels of performance and assumptions. These assumptions which are potentially harmful to practice carry their offences to the doorsteps of glazes their materials, handling and firing. This study considers these offences and generates defences which ceramic professionals must erect to ensure safe and successful studio practice.
