During Beth McGee‘s materials course, students from [2nd] year were visited by representative Keith Stevens from Ceramic Technics Ltd. which is based out of Georgia and specializes in a variety of tile types, including ceramic and glass. Stevens supplied the students with informational sources and guides that outlined both the material composition and installation process for the different types of tile. The presentation was very informative, and it was interesting to learn about the experiences he’s had working in the field. Demonstrations on the different types of tile installation were also presented with the samples that were present. Stevens brought the reality of working with materials in the field to the [2nd] year designers, and emphasized the importance of having knowledge of the different types of materials and their uses. His message was definitely welcomed and absorbed.
