Set Of...Final Set Of...Final Presentation Transcript

  • Ceramics 1 Final – Part 1
    Set of…
  • Your Final Challenge
    Over the past weeks, you have created pieces using hand-building techniques: pinch, coil & slab
    Phase 1 of this project is PLANNING!,
    You will brainstorm, research, sketch and plan a functional ceramic set that will incorporate all 3 hand-building techniques
  • So, what is a set?
  • What is a set?
    A collection of articles designed for use together, and have a similar nature, design, or function.
    Examples of sets: salt & pepper shakers, tea cups & saucers, plates, bowls, etc.
    Your set must include 3-4 pieces
  • Motivation & Inspiration
    Set should be functional, but also have an interesting conceptual theme.
    Consider the variety of functions a set can have, as well as what meaning and intent could go along with that function.
    When developing a conceptual theme, think about memories, stories, fables, legends, folklore, nursery rhymes, clichés, puns, irony, religions, politics…
  • Expectations & Grading:
    This project should be treated as a final exam:
    your ideas and work should be original and your own
    no part of this assignment can be turned in late - there will be no make-ups, re-dos, or additional time and materials provided
    you will be required to solve problems on your own (not rely on teacher to give you answers)
    if any portion of this project is lost or not submitted by the due date, it will be calculated as a ZERO grade
  • Grading Breakdown:
    Your 2-part final is worth 20% of your overall grade
    “Set of…” Phase 1 is worth 75% of the final project grade
    50-question open note test is worth 25% of the final project grade
  • What You’ll Do:
    Research & brainstorm a minimum of 10 different types of functional sets.
    Research & brainstorma minimum of 10 different conceptual themes to base the style and design of your set on.
    YOUR OWN idea development and planning.
  • What You’ll Do:
    FIVE detailed color drawings, from several angles, that illustrate what your final piece will look like once complete.
    A detailed set of steps on the process and techniques you will use to create the final set.
    Complete and hand-in your planning pages, rubric, reflection and one paragraph description of your process.
  • Tips:
    Detailed planning & process documentation will improve the final product, and your final grade.
    Go beyond the expected and ordinary. This is a FINAL project…my expectations are high!
    Be sure your set is matching – both in style, size, design, concept and function.
  • Requirements:
    Complete 5 full pages in sketchbook
    Complete reflection and one paragraph description of process
    You developed the piece on your own and did not rely on teacher to solve problems
    Your final product will contain pieces built using pinch pots, coils and slabs
    Your final product will include a minimum of 3 pieces, and a maximum of 4 pieces
  • Paul Donnelly’s tea tray is inspired by a variety of things: architecture, landscape, and by the practical desire to keep furniture ring free and a spoon or snack close at hand.
  • “I am inspired by nature: the autumn ground littered with Ginko fans, the layered foothills of Virginia viewed from a distance, the translucent blue-green sea.” – artist, Judith Papian
  • “The dualist dance of life was the inspiration for this set.” – artist, Craig Edwards
  • Dessert Cups on Stand
    “I design pieces specifically around rituals. The intended use is not readily apparent, but viewers get the sense that the pieces are meant to be used at least for special occasions that surround the manners and occasions of dining, both from my own life and from other cultures. – artist, Heather O’Brien
  • Haunted Forest
    “This piece, from a series called “Beneath the Pine Trees,” was inspired by my experiences working at a camp during my teens.” – artist, Pamela Segers
