Meaning, “to fool or trick the eye,” trompe l’oeil originally referred to paintings so realistic and so mundane in their subject matter, that they appeared not to be paintings at all. Artists have long loved disguise, deception, and humor in art, and as a result, trompe l’oeil has carried on in a variety of forms. From 18th-century porcelain bowls carved to look like cabbages to the hyperrealistic sculptures of Sylvia Hyman, this playful practice has long held a place in ceramics. Participants in this class will challenge themselves to combine their functional designs with detailed sculptural features as they craft whimsical vessels in this time-honored tradition of trickery.
