For this project I was tasked with creating project with a lid on the wheel. I decided to make something that had a very round and bulbous shape. The glaze I used for this project was metallic brown and white. Which as the end result came out very earthy in color. To make this I frequently used the "bellying out" technique in order to get the shape that I wanted. This was the first project I really worked on to get the right form I wanted. The form came out pretty spherical which I was very happy with. I used proportions a lot in this project in order to make a lid that fit the body. Overall this project has a very earthy (moss like) tone due to the color of the glaze.
For this project I chose to make a vase again on the wheel. I feel like this one is far superior than the first one I attempted. The form is very languid but angular at the same time. Due to those lines it makes the positive space seem more aggressive than the negative space. It really makes the object pop from the negative space around it. find that the color in the project is really elegant and beautiful. The glaze has it's own sort of movement making it very ascetically appealing. I think out of all my project this is the one with the most balance. Each side is harmonious to the other making it seem uniform. Overall this project has a very elegant and classy feel.
For this project I was tasked with making a cup with a pulled handle. The form is very curvaceous giving both the negative and positive space a very soft and delicate feeling. The colors. Being Sydney and cobalt blue with white on top, making this very pale almost lavender blue color, thus adding to the dainty overall feeling of the piece. This project has a very appealing shape. As well as a very nice movement throughout the piece, the eye flows well over the piece making it quite ascetically pleasing. Overall this piece makes me feel calm and soothed looking at it.
For this project I was tasked with making a planter on the wheel. I find that because of how angled all the lines are on the piece that is causes the positive space to feel very jagged and attention grabbing. Which in turn makes the negative space feel dainty. The colors I used in this project where forest green and white. The surface design feels very earthy, due to the mostly dark green with the sky blue rings here and there. The speckles dark green within the blue also gives it a cobbled stone look.
For this project I was tasked with making a vase on the wheel. The flow of the vase on the outside gives the overall positive space a very hardy and robust feeling. Thus causing the negative space to feel more aggressive due to the less languid movement of the outside lines. For this project I used dark cobalt with white over it. Due to how much white I used, it give the vase a very smooth finish on the outside. Where as if I had used less it would have been more languid dripping than one solid color. On the inside of the lip of the vase I used less white so it gave it a speckled dark look slowly fading further in to just dark cobalt. The inside and the outside of the piece are very different in feelings, the outside is very calming due to the almost lavender colors, where as the inside is more aggressive because the light color fades into a dark almost black.
For this project I was tasked with making another bowl on the wheel. This project has a very, bell like, shape so it gives the positive space of very elegant and stately feel. Have a very slow angled shaped also causes the negative space around to it appear very soft and spacious. For this piece I used sand for a base, and then I layered shadow green and forest green on top, both varying in levels on the piece to cause a dripping effect. In the photo it is hard to see but the glazes all together caused a very crystalline looking pattern on the little bowl. I think that the repetition of the crystalline pattern across the piece really gives it an elegant and interesting look. Plus the dripping on the inside versus the whole thing covered on the outside give is contrasting surfaces.
For this project I was tasked with creating a bowl on the wheel. I used clear glaze on the inside and black glaze on the outside to keep the form relatively simple looking. This project is one of my most symmetrical pieces. the shape flows well and is very aesthetically appealing. The positive space in this pieces has a very nice, slow curve, shape. Giving the negative space around it a very soft feel.
For this project, my Partners and I created a frankenPot. So that means that all three of us three of us threw separate cylinders and combined them to makes one. One new skill I learned was how to use the the red tool to make sure all the cylinders where the same width so that they would combine together well. One element in this project is form, I think it had really interesting form, it also flows very well together. Overall this project has a very earthy feel. For this project we used sane, light green and shadow green glaze.
For this project I tried to create a table. the media was Paper clay (Bry made the chair I made the table). One new skill that I learned during with was how how to work with paper clay, I have never been exposed to it before now. One of the main art elements in this piece is that it has really interesting form. It looks as if both the forms are old and collapsing.It has kind of an eerie claymation feeling to it.
The media of this project was clay out of the mixer and the wheel. Something I was really happy with was how the glaze came out, I used forest green and white drips. Which gave it the cool white blue spotted dripping down the sides of the little cylinder. How it was made it I placed a small amount of clay on the wheel and centered it, and lifted the sides until I had gotten all the clay up from the bottom, then with the pin tool I cut the top off and then I rounded the edge. Then the next day I footed it. One thing I learned on this project was the process of footing, and how to hold the tool when your foot your project. One design element is that the shape of the project is very uniform. Over all the idea of this project was to make a uniform cylinder and glaze it top where there was no pulling and the ending result was aesthetically pleasing.
