    Slab House Project Slab House Project Document Transcript

    • There’s No Place Like Home Slab Construction Ceramics I Mrs. Duckworth For centuries, the idea of home has been a source of inspiration for numerous artists. The most basic definition for ‘house’ is that of a building in which people live. But, isn’t it more than that? The landscape around the structure can sometimes feel as much as home as being inside it. Whether you live in an apartment in the city, or in a house in the suburbs, a house by the beach or a farm in the countryside, your home can be more than just a shelter. It can be a reflection of yourself, created from your own imagination.The activity:You will create a small, animated houseand use the walls to illustrate the world in which the house exists.What you’ll do: 1. Review a brief history of architecture and research the significance of a variety of dwellings from around the world. 2. Analyze different styles of architecturefrom a variety of countries and time periods… a. http://www.preservationdirectory.com/historicphotogallery/architecturalstylesgalleries.aspx b. http://architecturestyles.org/ c. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Architectural_style d. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_architecture e. http://www.greatbuildings.com/types.html 3. Analyze how humor and cartoon-like illustrations are used in the fine arts by artists: a. Claes Oldenburg - http://www.oldenburgvanbruggen.com/ b. Red Grooms - http://www.marlboroughgallery.com/galleries/chelsea/artists/red-grooms c. Theodor Geisel - http://www.catinthehat.org/history.htm 4. Research architecture and the artists above and choose one style of architecture AND one artist that have inspired you in some way… their style, subject matter, social statements, etc… and print three works that you have gained inspiration from. Be ready to explain how your piece reflects this inspiration. 5. Brainstorm ideas on the kind of house you will create. See Brainstorming &Sketching sheet. 6. Sketch 3 different house ideas based on your brainstorming. Share sketches with teacher and then choose one final design. 7. Create Template… From your sketch, draw the shape of the front wall and one of the side walls on a piece of coated board as if you were going to construct the house out of this board. Houses should be no more than 8 inches tall or wide, so you must get teacher approval on the templates before you cut them. Once approved, drawand cut the roof and any other elements to your house. Once all pieces are cut, assemble with masking tape to get a sense of how your house will look once complete. Make alterations if necessary. Label your template. 8. Use template to cut slab pieces and set aside to become leather hard. 9. Develop concept of design…Think of where your house exists and draw a setting for it. See Exterior Designsheet. 10. Build your house using either type of clay available; then add details, textures, and any of the features you developed previously. 11. Once fired, use glazes and underglazes to finish your house based on your drawings of the setting.
