Art 215 (Ceramics I) Assignment: Teapot
This project is assigned near the end of the semester. Students may either find inspiration from a teapot created by another artist (contemporary or historic), and alter this design, or they can create their own design. In either case, the design is presented for review before construction begins.
*At this point in the semester all of the students were working from home. This assignment was altered to accommodate working from home – students could choose to work with clay (and either not fire their work, or deliver it to school to be fired at a later date), or use alternative materials (cardboard, poster board, found objects, etc.).
The students are encouraged to document/photograph their work throughout the stages of construction, to help me assess their progress. This is two views of the same teapot, constructed with clay.
