Village Vessels

This week the students created a vessel from self-hardening clay using the coil and/or slab method that represents their interpretation of the settings in which they live or dream of living in. Shape, texture, and architectural details were emphasized. After a brief slideshow, they were given worksheets that they could reference for architectural details, then spent some times working out their creations in their sketchbooks.

The vessels will be painted with tempera and sealed with glossy modge podge next week. They seemed to really enjoy working with the materials and each piece was very different. I very much enjoyed hearing their stories as to why they included certain things.

Materials: Self-hardening clay, various clay hand building tools, trays, paint, brushes, mod podge.

Time: 2 sessions
