Create at least 2 functional cups with at least one other complimentary form. These objects will comprise a thematic group.
Some students choose to interpret this assignment with very elaborate compositions; other students focus on more understated form and surface. Function and attention to detail (craftsmanship) are always the main goals. The variety of outcomes contribute to an interesting discussion on the concept and challenges of making (and using) utilitarian forms.
This student was really inspired by the assignment and made dozens of cups, which were all decorated using the Mishima technique and flashing slip, and fired to cone 6 in a soda atmosphere (gas kiln).
