Ceramics 3 Independent Project Ideas
You can use any handbuilding technique or combination of them. You can do wheel thrown work. (throwing- using a mechanical device, potter’s wheel, that turns/spins in order to form clay.) Or you can do a combination of wheel thrown and handbuilt.
Handbuilding Techniques Coil- using snakelike ropes of clay; generally for making round forms Slab- a flat piece of clay created by rolling a roller over the clay, or pressing with hands; generally for making geometric forms with sharp edges Pinch- using the thumb and fingers to press a ball of clay into a hollow form Modeling- using your hands to manipulate clay into a form Press Molding (drape or sling mold)- to lay a slab of clay over or into an object to create its form (such as a bowl or balloon) Extruded- clay that is forced through a die (die = particular shape) Paddle- shaping a solid piece and then hollowing it out. Slip-casting- pouring slip (liquid clay) into a mold to take the mold’s form.

Consider your decoration. Sgraffito is one technique you may consider using.
