Pinch Pot Sculpture Vocabulary, Criteria, and Steps
Pinch Pot Sculpture Vocabulary Pinch Pot: the most basic method of creating a vessel form out of clay.
Pinch Pot Sculpture Vocabulary Form: three-dimensional shape.
Pinch Pot Sculpture Vocabulary Representational: refers to the ability of a piece of artwork to mimic reality. Representational does not necessarily refer to an objects realism.
Pinch Pot Sculpture Vocabulary Abstract: when a piece of art work is referred to as abstract, it is meant that the piece is not based on or meant to mimic reality at all.
Pinch Pot Sculpture Vocabulary Coil Reinforcement: using a coil of clay to press and blend into a seam which will strengthen the bond between the two pieces of clay.
Pinch Pot Sculpture Criteria Students will create a sculpture which… Is composed of at least 5 pinch pots in a variety of sizes and forms that have been connected by slipping, scoring, and reinforcing with a coil. In it's completed form is a minimum of 8" in one dimension. must be easily recognized as abstract. Is free standing. Is glazed with one selected color scheme.
Pinch Pot Sculpture Steps Students will… 1. Sketch six (6) full-page ideas of completed Pinch Pot sculptures (remember: you are not creating a sculpture that will look like anything). 2. Begin by making 5 pinch pots. 3. Connect them to each other by slipping, scoring, and coil reinforcing to begin your initial form. 4. When finished attaching all components of final form, use a wet paint brush and/or your finger to smooth all seams and surfaces. Bisque fire when completed. 5. Apply glaze using color theory to bisqued piece. Glaze fire.
