This is a research homework. Presentation is very important and here you have a choice: it could be a two page presentation in your sketchbook; a PowerPoint presentation; an A3 display sheet – check with your teacher first please. The research is based on a ceramics (claywork) theme. There are two main hand building techniques for making 3D ceramic forms (pots). These are the slab pot and the coil pot techniques. Since ancient times these techniques have been used to create large, imaginative and exciting vessels or pots. Until quite recently they have usually been functional but now they are made as decorative works of art. Many of the potters and artists who make these pots have become well known and their work is collected and displayed in galleries, much the same as paintings and sculpture.
Task For this homework you need to research the work of either one potter or the pottery work of a culture, eg the work of Grayson Perry or Nigerian pottery Find out between ten and fifteen interesting facts about the work of your chosen potter/culture. eg what techniques are used, what scale are the pots, where are/were they made, are they glazed, do they have patterns on them, what techniques were used to create the pattern? Have the pots been made for a particular reason, are they just decorative or do they have a message, is the artist trying to say something? When you have found out all this information plus more if possible put it all together in an interesting way along with some illustrations – remember presentation is important. Then you must add your own comments and opinions about the work. What do you think of it? Analyse and evaluate it etc.
