Power point 4 7 a and 7c ceramics

  1. 1. Ceramics Yr 7A & 7B Coil and Wheel-Thrown Pots.
  2. 2. What is a Coil Pot? <ul><li>Coiling is the process of building up the wall of a pot by snaking a rope of clay in circles, one on top of the other. </li></ul><ul><li>In the image on the right, the pot takes advantage of its coils and makes it an interesting design feature. </li></ul><ul><li>The gaps between the coils are sometimes filled in so the pot has smooth sealed walls. </li></ul>Leaving space between the joins of a coil pot.
  3. 3. What is a Wheel-Thrown Pot? <ul><li>Thrown pots are made by shaping clay using our hands while the clay is on a spinning potter’s wheel. As shown in the image on the left. </li></ul>Pot being formed by hand on the throwing wheel.
  4. 4. Vs <ul><li>Can be symmetrical or odd shaped (asymmetrical). </li></ul><ul><li>Can be small or very large. </li></ul><ul><li>Can use a variety of clay types. </li></ul><ul><li>Symmetrical in nature. </li></ul><ul><li>Have a size limit. </li></ul><ul><li>Can only use softer clays that are not as grainy. </li></ul><ul><li>Are quicker to make </li></ul>Coil Thrown
  5. 5. History of Pot Making. <ul><li>The earliest pottery ever discovered are from 6500 BC from nomadic tribes that traveled and journeyed across vast lands. These nomads/travelers would have valued the ability to carry and transport things like water or grain that otherwise would have been difficult if not impossible to move long distances without a pot to carry these things in. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>The first pot like objects “were made by pushing holes into lumps of clay and squeezing and pinching” up the sides of the lump. They would have been small objects that </li></ul><ul><li>could hold only very little. </li></ul><ul><li>These first pots would have </li></ul><ul><li>looked very similar to pinch </li></ul><ul><li>pots. </li></ul>History of Pot Making.
  7. 7. History of Pot Making. <ul><li>Because these early pinch pots could only carry small amounts of water and food, the next stage in the history of pot making was coil pots. </li></ul><ul><li>People began to make their pinch </li></ul><ul><li>pots bigger by adding on coils of </li></ul><ul><li>clay to the rims of the pots. </li></ul>Japan’s Jōmon people, who thrived from 10,000 to 300 BC, made distinctive pottery for boiling, steaming, and storing food. The pots were made with coils of clay and then decorated by rolling carved sticks, plant fibers, or braided cords over the outer surface.
  8. 8. History of Pot Making. <ul><li>The next major development in making pottery was the invention of the potter’s wheel which happened thousands of years latter. </li></ul><ul><li>Being able to make pots on a fast turning wheel, made making pots a lot quicker. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Coiling Artists <ul><li>Michael Hardy </li></ul><ul><li>Pot on far right. </li></ul><ul><li>Monica Young </li></ul><ul><li>Both of these artists cover up the coils in their pots with an extra layer of clay. </li></ul><ul><li>A smooth surface is left behind. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Throwing Artists <ul><li>Pacharapong Suntanaphan </li></ul><ul><li>Uses throwing to make a cup and plate out of the same bit of clay. </li></ul><ul><li>Chris Keenan </li></ul><ul><li>Looks at the nature of throwing, while they may look the same they will always be unique. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Quiz
  12. 12. <ul><li>What is the definition of a pinch pot? </li></ul><ul><li>Make a quick sketch of one. </li></ul><ul><li>What is the definition of a coil pot? </li></ul><ul><li>Make a quick sketch of one. </li></ul><ul><li>What is the definition of a wheel-thrown pot? </li></ul><ul><li>Make a quick sketch of one. </li></ul><ul><li>Why can only soft smooth clay be used when throwing a pot? </li></ul><ul><li>What type of pot can be made the largest? </li></ul><ul><li>Why did the nomads or travelers value ceramic pots? </li></ul>
