Fong Choo
Allan Rosenbaum
Michael Lucero
•Fong Choo, a Singapore-born potter, skillfully makes miniature teapots with great skill and beauty. Established in Louisville, Kentucky, some of his sculptural teapots are no larger than an egg.
Gain an introductory knowledge of clay terms and
techniques.

Create a
functional
work of art using hand building techniques.
Goals:
Problem:
Create a
metamorphic
mug/vessel using hand building techniques. Although the subject matter is left up to the artist, mugs should be creative, detailed, and well constructed. Remember, mugs are intended to be seen from
all
sides. Mugs do not have to be animal in nature.
Ceramics:
Ceramics
Clay
a fine-grained, but firm, material that is
plastic
when wet, brittle when dry, and very hard when
heated.
The art of making objects from
clay.
Clay Building Techniques:
Wedging
Coil
Pinch Pot
Made by mixing clay with
water.
Long, snakelike
ropes
of clay that are used in making pottery.
a technique to make clay plastic and remove air
pockets.
Halima Cassell
•Halima Cassell is a British artist whose deeply sculptural vessels are inspired by Islamic and African art as well as architectural geometry.
Kathy Butterly
•One of Germany’s most important potters, Beat Kuhn pioneered the technique of making sculpture from wheel-thrown multiples.
Fire Process:
Kiln
Glaze
Firing
a thin coating of minerals which produces a
glassy
transparent or colored coating on bisque ware.
the process of baking and
hardening
pottery.
a special oven or furnace that can reach very high temperatures and is used to bake, or
fire
clay.
Rubric:
Slab
Slip
Pinching is a fundamental pottery technique.
Pinch-pots are created by pressing the
thumb
into a ball of clay, and drawing the clay out into a
bowl
or pot. This is achieved by repeatedly squeezing the clay between the thumb and fingers.
The coil method of making pottery involves building the walls of a pot with a series of coils into the required shape.
Clay slabs are cut to shape and joined together using scoring and wet clay called
slip.
Scoring and applying slip to such roughened surfaces creates a bond that holds the pieces
together.
Slip is a fine, liquid form of clay used with scoring to cement together parts that have been formed separately.
Relief
A type of sculpture in which images project from a
background.
There are three types of relief: high, low, and sunken.
In
high
relief, forms project half-way or more from the background.
In
low
relief, forms project only slightly from the background.
In
sunken
relief, the backgrounds are cut away and the areas in highest relief are level with the original surface.
Temperatures in kilns can reach
2500
degrees.
The high temperature fuses the clay particles together, hardening the clay.
Glaze is fixed by firing the bisque ware in a kiln a second time.
Featured Artists:
•American ceramist Allan Rosenbaum makes humorous figurative sculpture influenced by West Coast Funk and Surrealism.
•Michael Lucero is American clay sculptor who creates surrealistic works surprisingly influenced by Native American Pueblo art.
•American ceramist Kathy Butterly is known for her softly folded, twisted and distorted porcelain vessels. Her abstract works are whimsical sculptures often created with bodily references.
