Today we are continuing our Roman Relief tile. We focused on adding multiple layers to create more detail on our designs as well as using the ribbon tool to carve layers into the clay.
When finishing up our Relief Tiles, our focus is good craftsmanship. Compare and contrast the following tiles and figure out what has the best craftsmanship and why.
Last week many of you began creating your 5x5 clay tile and then began adding the layers of clay on top with the slip and score method. Below are visuals of the first few steps if you need reminders!
After you add your main layers using the steps above, you will begin carving into the tile using the subtractive method. See Mrs. Denison's demo for more details.
Today, the students will begin their next project to create a tile relief inspired by Roman Architecture.
Once students have drawn out their rough draft, they will need to add shading. Dark for the back layer, medium for the middle layer and light for the top layer of the relief.
