Clay Container Project
(Under construction – old and in need of a reno…)
We have practised the Pinch, Coil and Slab techniques of working with clay. Now lets see what we can do!
In this project, you are asked to make a container, any shape, theme or look you want. My only recommendation is that you have a starting point, i.e. a castle tower, a lighthouse, a human are, an elephant’s trunk…
I usually would put pictures below… but instead I want you to draw 6 things that you think could be made into towers
For this project, you should try and make the most interesting and exciting container possible!
Some things to think about: Texture, Detail, Purpose, hold-ability and wicked sweetness.
Each student will need to:
- Pre sketches/ Brain storming 10 Points
- Make 10 thumb-nail [small- 3×5”] sketches from different angles to get a sence of what you are planning to make. 10 points
- Make a draft showing three sides and the detail they intend to put into their container. 30 points
- Completed Clay container 100 points
