the reference i used is the one they are most familiar with on their wall infront of them which they look at every day in class
This is how they look like after firing first layer of underglaze at 1000 degree celcius; resulting in a seemingly flat matt finishing. After this, they will be coated with a layer of glossy glaze and then fired at above 1260 degree celcius to achieve a glossy finishing.
L01: open vessel w/stylised design.. Its wonderful to have 3 classes of 120 students packed on the same day same place back to back. I love it esp when it comes to ceramics. Strangely i perspire so much less during ceramics classes like these ones even though the class room may be pretty stuffy and warm. There is like as though something really really tranquillising and cooling about ceramics classes even though there is always so many students, noise, activity going on during ceramics classes But the feeling is always so complete and at peace. I think there is oso something about the clay dust in the atmosphere which oso contributes…
L02: Closed Vessel
only 15 mins for them to complete cos they were held up during assembly time.. hence with minimal design
L03: soap or trinklet dish
L03: Soap dish or trincklet dish
4A did a great job
L04: individual animal sculpting
All in all about a total of about 900 pieces of ceramics artworks
First lesson: Task is for each pupil to make a functional container which can be a cup/bowl/minipot/etc
via pinching, an age old technique as old as human history/existence itself
with stylised design elements
