Transcript of Positive and Negative Space Ceramics

What is Negative and Positive Space?
Simply put, positive space is best described as the areas in a work of art that are the subjects, or areas of interest. Negative space is area around the subjects, or areas of interest.
Examples of Negative space
Everyone Uses Negative and Positive Space
Rubin's vase is an optical illusion in which the negative space around the vase forms the silhouettes of two faces in profile, a well-known example of figure-ground reversal by emphasizing that negative space
A more simple cut out :)
If you are seeing a vase, then you are seeing the white area as the positive space. The black areas become the negative space.
If you are seeing faces, then you are seeing the black areas as the positive space, and the white area as the negative space.
Even as children we are taught about how to make new and exciting art figures usuing cut outs. Every negative space peice does not have to be a complex peice of art.
