The root word of composition is compose
A- The asymmetry of color contrasts with the symmetry of form and creates a sense of tension and movement. The larger and darker color appears to pull back in space against the lighter and small area. The use of color contrasts with the form.
B- The symmetry of form is in harmony with symmetry of pattern and pulls our attention to the center. The pattern also helps describe the form by outlining the edge and narrowing down the inner wall as the bowl narrows.
What are the four main techniques used in making a structure out of clay?
HINT - pinching, coiling, slabs, the wheel! That's it - yet we can do just about anything with clay using these basic techniques.
- we can also make things out of liquid clay in molds... but we don't do that here in this class.
Judging by how your pinch project looks out of the glaze (or someone else's) what could you differently on your coil pot?
What does it mean to be finished in wet clay? How can you 'finish' your project in the leather hard state?
