  • House: "Mystics have always traditionally considered the feminine aspect of the universe as a chest, a house or a wall, as well as an enclosed garden. Another symbolic association is that which equates the house (and the above, related forms) with the repository of all wisdom, that is tradition itself.
  • The figures become the water or growth pushing up from the house. The figures layered with leaves are images of growth.

  • Transcript

    • 1. Christine Federighi (1949-2006) Using Carving to Tell a Story
    • 2. Who is Christine Federighi?
      • Artist that worked with clay for over 30 years.
      • Professor of ceramics at the University of Miami for over 32 years.
      • She created large coil forms, often resembling the human form.
    • 3. In her work, there are several repeating symbols. For example, the human figure, houses, water, and leaves.
    • 4. What could leaves and water symbolize? Leaves=Growth Water=Change
    • 5. The symbols also tell a little about where she is from. Exotic Leaves=Miami House=Western U.S.
    • 6. She often uses wire in addition to the clay forms, which often times unifies the piece.
    • 7. Her Technique:
      • Forms are built using the Coil method.
      • She carved the designs into the surface.
      • Often, wire is added to the forms after they have been fired as decoration.
      • She paints the forms with a solid coat of acrylic paint (usually black).
      • Then dry brushes oil paint over the black coat.
    • 8.  
    • 9. Federighi believes that “we all have personal symbols or images that we consciously or unconsciously use for any variety of reasons.”
    • 10. Therefore, you will:
      • Create a sculpture in the “style” of Christine Federighi.
      • Before you begin, you must find your own personal symbols. Create 3 sketches of possible sculpture solutions. (Don’t just copy her!)
      • The sculpture needs to be 8” to 10” tall or wide.
      • A story must be carved into the surface of the form(s).
      • Paint the form(s) in the style of Federighi.
      • Option: Use wire as an additional material to unify your sculpture.
