As you know from the beginning video of this series the goal is to inspire creativity. Day 5’s use of the one pound of clay took many forms before I had to call it quits..LOL! It was a cup, then it was cut into a dish and then it was formed as a lantern that was to be hung. Because I still had clay left of the 1lb I ended up putting a foot on it…with still some left I rolled it into a ball and created my making to sit in the center of the piece. Now that you know the results…here are my thoughts.
WHAT I LIKE ABOUT THIS: Visually speaking ….hmmm. I’ll refrain judgement until it comes out of the glaze firing..LOL! I think more than how it turned out I can say this piece taught me a lot more about clay itself. What it can do, how long it can do it, what not to do…in more than one instance I stretched it too far and had to change directions to finish the piece. It was a tremendous learning experience!
