Cardboard Project

 

  • 1) What learning did you bring to this project?  How/where can I see this?
    • I didn’t really have a lot of learning when it came to this project so it was definitely a first for me. I feel like the one piece of learning that I did bring was the fact that I knew how to work with cardboard in some ways but I did learn a lot of new things during the duration of the project.  I feel like you would be able to see this in the way I was able to come up with different shapes and ideas for each layer of the project.
  • 2) What is something new that you learned? How/where can I see this 
    • I think the one thing that I did learn while doing this project was how to work with different strings and the glue gun for sure. My biggest obstacle with this project was, of course, the glue gun, I was always trying to find the best way to use in and make use of just a little dot of glue rather than a large one. I think you would be able to see everything that I learned in how I was able to paste all of the different pieces on and how they were initially cut out.
  • 3) What learning are you taking forward?  How will you try to apply this?
    • I think the learning that I am taking forward from this project is how to construct something that is completely abstract and how not having the urge to make the project into an actual object. I needed to use a lot of creativity during this project which I think I did because It was hard for me to try and think of different components for the project and how I would make the end product look.

Formative Textured Containers

More photos to come…..

Textured Cylinder: 

 

Formative cylinder #2: 

 

Both of these formatives have really taught me a lot. This was the first time I was able to get my hands dirty with clay. These were much needed test runs, as these led me to a summative that I am very proud of. I think something that I need to work on before I finish my summative entirely, would be the glazing of the pot. I feel like I need to work on creating a more equal coat around the pot, so that when fired, it will come out looking even and more beautiful then it already was.

Textured Container

 

1) What learning did you bring to this project?  How/where can I see this?

  • Honestly I didn’t bring much learning to this project because I didn’t have much knowledge on how clay really worked. But I feel that something I did come into the class knowing was that you had to work around the clay’s mood and what it wants to do. I think that you can see this in the first picture where the mold is still sitting around the tube, trying to harden.

2) What is something new that you learned? How/where can I see this?

  • Something new that I learned while working through this project was trying to add texture to clay containers as well and assembling containers. I had a lot of fun assembling and adding texture once I got the hang of it. I think you would be able to see this added texture within the indentions of the pot. I took a textured scraper and just circled the pot multiple times making sure I had deep enough indentions on all sides of the pot to where I was happy with it.

3) What learning are you taking forward?  How will you try to apply this?

  • The learning that I’m taking forward is the complete process of making pots out of cylinder molds and making boxes. I had a bit of a rough start because I was still trying to understand how to roll out clay and how to make sure I got it on the cylinder mold without ruining the slap. I will definitely apply these techniques from this project to future projects. I also applied my learning for my formatives and summative to a pot that i’m making for fun.
