Sculpture Video From Gallery In Scottsdale

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???)

Wheel Throwers

Tom Coleman Platter
Nested Bowls

Chris Gustin Bowl


Platter with slip



Bowl with decals




- (Alleghany Meadows photo below)-
STUDENTS/TASKS/BLOG/I-BOOK

-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.











Sculpture People/Advanced Pottery

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.



Sculpture People-

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!)

Look at the following websites:
