At the end of this course, the student will have information about the techniques of glass blowing and forming, interpret the knowledge about the techniques of glass blowing, based on the knowledge and skills gained, can design and apply the design of glass blowing techniques. It can produce by using glass blowing techniques as well as combining glass blowing techniques with other glass techniques.
CERG 332 Photographic Applications on Ceramic and Glass Surfaces (1,4) 3
This course covers the use of three-dimensional and two-dimensional ceramic and glass surfaces instead of the application of artistic images obtained with the camera to the usual paper / cardboard surfaces. In this course, the student will first observe, recognize, question and then come to a conclusion and transfer the image to the ceramic and glass surfaces. He will discover new possibilities in artistic expression on two or three dimensional surfaces that he will use with vision, perception and meaning.
CERG 333 Plaster wheel (1,4) 3
At the end of this course, the student will be able to learn the practical and theoretical methods of model preparation and mold making with plaster, lathe and stencil forming methods, which is one of the auxiliary materials in ceramic and glass forming. The aim of this course is to learn the techniques of plaster model forming and mold preparation, to form ceramic and / or glass objects, to learn the theoretical and terminological information about plaster material, forming and molding, to create original designs suitable for the given projects and to learn the methods of transition from project design to production.
CERG 334 Stained Glass (1,4) 3
In this course, the student will be able to learn about stained glass samples made during the historical process and learn the details of mosaic stained glass, leaded stained glass, plaster stained glass and tiffany techniques. During the course, the student learns the details of oven stained painting techniques based on their application and researches about oven paints (transparent, matt, opaque, etc.) and will be able to realize designs using painting and other stained glass techniques for their own suggested space. As a result of these studies; they adopt the stained glass techniques to be used, implements acid feeding, sandblasting, grinding and painting processes used in stained glass techniques with different sample studies.
CERG 336 History of Contemporary Ceramic Art (3,0) 3
This course aims to provide the students with a general knowledge about the development of contemporary ceramics in the world, pioneering ceramic artists and ceramic artists who are prominent in their art. At the same time, course aims to provide the students with the competence to conduct research in their fields and present their research to the audience and to gain the awareness of following the current developments in their field. At the end of the course, the students are expected to have knowledge about the development of contemporary ceramics in the world, to have knowledge about the pioneering foreign ceramic artists, to make an opinion about the construction and technical characteristics of a sample ceramic work, to interpret a contemporary ceramic work in an artistic language and to express thoughts about it. It is also expected that the students will be able to conduct research on a subject and share their research with the audience and answer any questions.
CERG 335 Ceramic Sculpture (1,4) 3
In this course, it is aimed to examine abstract, figurative and narrative expression in the form, space and aesthetic relations triangle and to interpret it with contemporary expression. It is aimed that different clay bodies become original designs with different firing techniques and glaze applications.
CERG 441 Advanced Decoration Techniques (1,4) 3
In this course, it is aimed to gain theoretical and practical knowledge and skills about printing decor techniques (direct, indirect screen printing, etc.) used on ceramic surfaces before or after firing in ceramic design. In line with these gains, it is aimed to be supported by industrial or artistic design projects. In the course of the course, it is aimed to form projects in which the students use different decor techniques as a narrative language in line with the formation they has gained about ceramic decor techniques.
CERG 442 Advanced Glass Blowing (1,4) 3
At the end of this course, the student will be able to learn more about the methods of forming hot glass and learn by experience such as ‘Graal, Incalmo, Inlay, Millefiori.. They complete their designs by using the appropriate one of these techniques.
CERG 443 Antique Glass Techniques (1,4) 3
This course will introduce students to the most simple and primitive forms of glass techniques that have developed since the discovery of glass. The aim of the course is to learn the methods of emergence and application of production techniques which are facilitated and developed by technological developments, to understand the logic of the production process and to make more conscious steps in its subsequent applications.
