As you know from the beginning video of this series the goal is to inspire creativity. Day 5's use of the one pound of clay took many forms before I had to call it quits..LOL! It was a cup, then it was cut into a dish and then it was formed as a lantern that was to be hung. Because I still had clay left of the 1lb I ended up putting a foot on it…with still some left I rolled it into a ball and created my making to sit in the center of the piece. Now that you know the results…here are my thoughts.
WHAT I LIKE ABOUT THIS: Visually speaking ….hmmm. I’ll refrain judgement until it comes out of the glaze firing..LOL! I think more than how it turned out I can say this piece taught me a lot more about clay itself. What it can do, how long it can do it, what not to do…in more than one instance I stretched it too far and had to change directions to finish the piece. It was a tremendous learning experience!
THE ATMOSPHERE: Concentration and problem solving. The entire time I worked on this piece I was continually trying to anticipate my next move! Some decisions were good and others………
Like I said, when this thing is glazed I may LOVE IT…but for now, I’ll wait :D
Hope you enjoyed today’s piece and I’ll be back at it again tomorrow!!
Thanks for watching and go ENJOY SOME CLAY!
