Ceramics students put the FUN in functional with a playful project that teaches the basics of ceramic hand building.
In Ceramics II the students have been hard at work constructing amazing shoes out of clay. Students first designed paper templates. After the paper prototype was constructed students then moved on to clay. Students realized many changes had to be adjusted along the way for the finished product to look like a realistic shoe. Craftsmanship, and observation were some key components to a successful shoe.
MA Standard: Students will demonstrate their powers of observation, abstraction, invention and expression in a variety of media, materials and techniques.
Expectations: Students will create a set of mugs, either wheel thrown, or hand built. Something is considered a set in many ways, color, form, technique, graphics, use of texture, line or all of the above.
In Term 2, our Ceramic students worked again in hand building. They were asked to recreate a delicious piece of food, and make it as realistic as possible. I think they look great, just don’t try to eat them!
