I found this great video on wheel throwing. I think he does a great job of breaking it down for you guys, so check it out.
We will be using our texture stamps to create texture into a slab that we will then make into a tripod mug!
Check out this video for the steps on how to create the mug. I have a separate video for handles that you should view, but I also like how this artist makes her handle and lets it set up for a day as well.
Click on the above link to watch the Art 21 segment on Arlene Shechet. Follow the directions on the handout in class to create a sketchbook response to the artist. You may use the colored pencils or watercolors on your sketchbook page. Be sure to take a picture to post on the "other" page on your blog and turn in the sketchbook page to the sub.
For our next assignment, we will use a coils to build a piece of pottery that is at least 10" tall. For this you will use exposed coils, where the coils are smoothed on the inside, but left as a part of the design for the outside.
Assignment: carefully observe the video and write down at least one quote or observation that resonated with you when watching the documentary. We will share these after the video.
