Check out this video. It has images of many up and coming sculpture people in America. I bet you know who some of the artists are already. (Cynthia Consentino, ???, Can you guess who any of the other artists are? Let's talk about this in class. Does looking at this clip give you any ideas? (Body position, surface finishing, size???)
TURN IN YOUR I-BOOKS WITH YOUR BLOGS SECURELY FASTENED INSIDE OF THEM TO MR. WYATT ON MONDAY. MAKE SURE YOU DON'T FORGET, THIS WILL AFFECT YOUR GRADE! I WILL BE BACK ON TUESDAY, LET'S MAKE A LOT OF ART BEFORE THE YEAR IS OVER1
Please refer to previous assignment (Blogs) Make sure all required information is included on your blog (Images, influences, work in progress, plan for the future, etc....) Print out blog and put it in your I-Book. Add notes/sketched/ideas in the margin This was really due last week! Turn it in now!!!!!!
-Photograph all work in progress -Put anything you have to be bisqued in the kiln room. -Glaze as soon as possible. I would like to fire the gas kiln (ASAP!)
If you are working on-
-Bottles: Set of 3 (All must be trimmed) -One piece enclosed forms with lids Set of three that look related (Lid must fit!) -Bowls: Set of six that stack and match exactly. Same size foot rings, height. -Plates: Set of 6 Must stack. Same size footring. Same glaze. Make sure all plates get put --in the same firing. ( Why do you think that is important?) If you don't know, come talk with me-
Platters- 6 Do not need to match. Must be at least 8 pounds. Throw on plaster bats so they release easily. Rotate when drying (up and down) so they dry evenly.
Student in my class at Penland. (Cristina Cordova workshop)
Cristina Cordova working on a head. Adding white clay to red, like we are doing in class.
Close up. Remember that loading a stiff brush with white clay and painting in the direction of the muscles will make the face look more realistic.
Remember to have a mirror, photographs, and an anatomical image with muscle details in front of you while you are working.
Pay attention to details. Look at the line of the lips. They are not straight. Why not? Because of the muscles under the skin.
Completed by Wednesday! At the absolute latest!!!!
-one eye -two eyes -nose -mouth -ear
After completing the above try various surface finishing techniques on your face tiles -cold finishing -underglazes -sgraffito -raku -sandblast back glaze/watercolor/ acrylic oil
Remember, influences (artists) must be included in blog and I-Book Sketches/Photograph of facial expressions Plan! Plan! Plan! Will you use real hair? Is technical more important than concept? Why? What is the focus/idea?
Torsos must have arms/ It's always a good idea to practice small and then switch to a larger sculpture!
Look at the sculpture images I have included on the website! Import images into your blog. I now have an I-Flip camera, so if you would like to include video clips of work in progress that is now possible! Yippee! ( I think this is quite exciting!)
I am a retired high school art teacher. My focus while teaching was Ceramics and Mixed Media. I loved teaching. High School Students are AMAZING! We recently built a new house which took almost 2 years to build. I have an amazing studio, and I am getting back into the swing of things again. I have decided it is all about surface, I love surface, function, ritual and habits.
