Transcript

  • 1. Ceramic Construction:Pinch Method
  • 2. Fresh Clay
  • 3. Save back a piece for attachments or decorations.
  • 4. Form the clay into a ball using both of your hands.
  • 5. Stick in your thumb to make a hole.
  • 6. Support the clay
    in the palm of one hand. Use the thumb
    and fingers of your other hand
    to widen the hole. Form a simple bowl.
  • 7. The walls of the bowl should be “uniform.”
    That means that the walls should have the same thickness
    on the top as they do on the bottom.
  • 8. The walls should be no thinner than your “pinkie” finger.
  • 9. …and no thicker than your “pointer” finger.
  • 10. If you don’t want your bowl to be rounded on the bottom,
    gently tap the bowl on the table.
  • 11. If you want the sides to be smooth,
    gently roll the sides on a smooth and dry part of the table.
  • 12. If you want the top to be even,
    gently tap the top on the table.
  • 13. When you are satisfied with your form,
    add extras.
  • 14. You can make a flat piece by “patty-caking” a piece of clay
    between your two hands.
  • 15. You can cut new shapes by cutting your “slab” with a paper clip.
  • 16.
  • 17. “Slip and score” the two pieces you want to attach.
  • 18.
  • 19. Add a tiny bit of extra clay, then “blend” the two parts
    using your finger or a smooth blending tool.
  • 20.
  • 21.
  • 22. Anything that has texture can be used to create decoration.
    This is an ordinary comb.
  • 23.
  • 24. A garlic press can be used to create hair-like strings of clay.
  • 25. When you have the clay as long as you like,
    cut it off using a paper clip.
  • 26. “Slip and score” the pieces
    you want to stay attached.
  • 27. Clay this thin is almost certain to break off.
  • 28. Pressing the clay closer to the main form
    and grouping the tiny pieces will make it stronger.
  • 29. These pieces are irregular.
  • 30. Rolling them between your two palms can turn them into round eyes.
  • 31. This ordinary pencil is creating a pupil.
  • 32. Feel free to use exaggeration.
    “Slip and score” the pieces you want to stay attached.
  • 33.
  • 34. Paper clips can be used to cut in designs also.
  • 35.
  • 36. Mouth
  • 37. Hands
  • 38.
  • 39. Fingers
  • 40.
  • 41. Arms
  • 42.
  • 43. Keep adding to your form
    until you are satisfied.
  • 44. Don’t neglect the back.
    Sculpture is 3-D.
    The back is important.
  • 45. Legs
  • 46.
  • 47.
  • 48. Tail
  • 49. Texture
  • 50.
  • 51. More texture.
  • 52. Creating texture with cloth.
  • 53.
  • 54. Almost the end.
  • 55. The end.
    Use a pen to write your name and class number on the bottom.
    Do this every day.
    Initials are never enough.
