    Slump & Hump Mold Dish Project Slump & Hump Mold Dish Project Document Transcript

    • Coiled  &  Stamped    Molded  Dish   Ceramics  II                                Mrs.  Duckworth  &  Mrs.  Holtz     Hump  or  Slump  Mold:    is  the  process  of  laying  a  slab  of  clay   over  a  shape,  the  hump,  and  shaping  the  clay  to  that  form.    You   can  also  use  the  coil  method  on  the  mold  and  not  blend  the  coils   together,  creating  a  pattern  on  one  side.    A  slump  mold  is  the   opposite  –  where  you  lay  the  clay  inside  of  a  shape.       Clay  Stamping:  creating  a  pattern  in  clay  and  shaping  it  into  a   stamp  form.    The  stamp  is  then  bisque  fired  and  used  to  press   into  soft  clay,  thus  transferring  the  pattern  so  it  can  be  repeated   in  a  design.       The  activity:    Using  high-­‐fire  clay  and  glazes,  you  will  create  a   functional  dish  using  a  hump  mold  or  slump  mold,  clay  coils   and  slabs,  and  clay  stamps.         What  you’ll  do:   1. Review  the  PowerPoint  on  coiled  and  stamped  dishes  to  understand  the  process  and  techniques.     2. Look  at  examples  and  research  clay  pieces  created  using  a  slump  or  hump  mold,  as  well  as  the  coil   method,  in  order  to  gain  a  better  understanding  of  the  processes.       3. Find  3  examples  for  inspiration  –  examples  should  include  both  coiled  and  stamped  plate,  bowl  or   tray  designs.    As  you  research,  think  about  what  kind  of  dish  you  want  to  create.    The  examples  you  find   should  appeal  to  you.    Print  them  and  attach  them  to  Worksheet  #1  –  Inspiration  Page.     4. Design  your  own  clay  dish  inspired  by  your  examples.    You  should  design  at  least  3  different  ideas  for   patterns  and  shapes.    Be  sure  your  designs  include  a  place  to  add  stamped  details,  feet,  handles,  etc.     This  should  be  done  on  Worksheet  #2  –  Designing  and  Planning  Page.     5. Bring  in  a  dish  from  home  to  use  as  your  slump  or  hump  mold  if  you  desire  a  shape  we  do  not  have  in   class.   6. Participate  in  a  slump  and  hump  molding  demonstration.       7. First,  roll  several  clay  coils  to  use  on  your  dish  and  make  sure  they  are  kept  moist  by  always  having   them  under  damp  towel  and  plastic.     8. Create  your  dish  using  the  pattern  you  designed  and  a  mold.   9. When  almost  leather  hard,  pull  dish  from  mold  and  repair  any  mistakes  on  the  side  that  was  against   the  mold.    Then  you  can  add  details  –  handles,  feet,  borders,  etc.  –  and  stamp  the  areas  planned  in  your   design.   10. Bisque  fire  your  final  dish  –  put  it  on  shelves  near  the  kiln,  loosely  covered.     11. Glaze  your  dish  after  it  has  been  bisque  fired,  and  return  it  to  shelves  near  kiln  to  be  fired  again.     Tips:   • Think  about  if  you  want  your  design  to  be  symmetrical  or  asymmetrical.     • Roll  some  practice  coils  to  be  sure  they  will  form  the  way  you  want.     • Make  all  your  coils  first,  and  make  them  the  same  size.    THIS  IS  KEY!    The  mold  will  dry  your  coil   pattern  while  you  take  time  to  roll  more  coils.     • Remember  to  add  details  –  borders,  handles,  feet,  stamped  textures,  etc.       Requirements:   1. Complete  Worksheet  #1  –  Inspiration  Page   2. Complete  Worksheet  #2  –  Designing  and  Planning  Page   3. Create  a  final  coil  dish  using  a  slump  or  hump  mold  and  clay  stamped  details

Sketch  your  stamp  designs  and  have  them  handy  for  reference.     2. Design  at  least  3  different  coil  patterns   3. Sketch  a  minimum  of  5  different  dishes  that  incorporate  the  previously  designed  coil  patterns,   possible  slab  integration,  and  stamped  areas.     4. Decide  on  handle  and  feet  designs  and  how  you  will  create  a  unified  dish  with  all  of  these   components.

Did you take the scope of the assignment and bring new and interesting thoughts and visual imagery to it? Did you develop more than one idea or consider several ideas before beginning? Does your dish demonstrate skill and creativity in the construction and finishing technique/s chosen? Application of Materials & Processes Did you create a dish effectively using the methods demonstrated in class? Did you successfully create and add details and texture to your dish? Did you use high fire clay and glaze successfully and as demonstrated? Craftsmanship Are there obvious signs of care and quality in the production and creation of your piece?
