rubric for the vase
-I can create a ceramic vase using the choking technique and a rib tool that has a ‘vase’ shape of uniform thickness - between 1/4” and 1/8” - at least 4” tall and 3” wide. the lip and base should be much narrower than the shoulder.
-trim the foot during the throwing process so that it can be left un-footed if necessary.
-proportion of ⅓ at the neck to ⅔ at the foot, with three different circumferences of lip, shoulder and base. it will have a compressed lip
-- glaze enhances the project
- project is unified and well thought out and executed.
