Using the slab you will create a vase, pitcher, or mug form. They should be functional when finished. ie: the vase and pitcher need a base to hold liquid. You will be incorporating textures onto the form. At least two carved or inset relief textures. At least one added texture. You will be given examples of these in future slides.
You will have access to texture plates, textured rolling pins and other stamping tools to create relief. You may use carving tools to create your own unique relief. You may use thickened slip to create raised textures. Also sgraffito! The added relief could be created by slipping and scoring small balls, spikes, coils, leaves etc. of clay to the outsides & rims of the piece.
Must use the clay slab for the main body of the piece. Must incorporate 3 plus textures onto piece. 2 relief and 1 addition Have the textures been created neatly? Do they flow all the way around the piece? Do they repeat over the whole piece or do we find a little bit here and there? Does your piece follow one of the 4 forms? Is your piece functional? Must be glazed on the inside and outside. Does it have smooth edges so as not to chip or cut someone? What else do you think might be important to consider in the criteria and quality of this piece?!
