Two 17in fishes! Completed no less! Fired to cone six in oxidation. The black is amaco velvet jet black underglaze. The tan is just bare clay. The top one is my fav of the series.
These are for the Art100 show at the Piano Craft Gallery in South Boston coming up on December 2-17 this year.
I made this clay jackolantern in my high school ceramics class (about 2 years ago) Not to toot my own horn, but my stuff was pretty much always the best compared to the other students. 😎😚😉 but I guess I was probably the only one taking the class for fun, and not just to get art credits to graduate.
The Process of Creating my Rayquaza in High School Ceramics II
I made this my senior year in high school. I enjoyed every second of creating this. In the last picture, you can see where the body kept separating from the pokeball. I should have made a Master Ball, but oh well.
After pigging out on food, it’s time to return to lesson planning, so I have a question for the fellow art teachers…Any answer will be appreciated.
I will be teaching color theory soon for my high school ceramics class; students will be painting one of their projects with acrylic paint, glazing another.
I need to decide the best method for students to practice mixing colors. Last year, I had students complete a color wheel (which works best for this type of class of mixed learners and grade levels), but students ended up ignoring it and forgot the point of creating one….I want to spend more than 1 day on this. I’m thinking of creating a packet (3 pages perhaps), where students have to choose colors to fulfill the different color schemes.
(I’ve taught color theory for my 2D art class, which is intuitive because we’re painting. But because this is a 3D art class, I feel that things should work a little differently. Or maybe not, maybe I’m just assuming that.)
Quaggan Chalice I made during my senior year of high school in ceramics class. It was literally the only thing I did that year in that class. It took me around 5 months to complete. It is made of fired greenware clay and tempera paint. I figured why not upload it because of Heart of Thorns coming out next month nyaaa.
