Together and Apart - KINTSUGI POTTERY

  1. 1. Together / Apart
  2. 2. 3 Kintsugi 金継ぎ The Japanese art of fixing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum. As a philosophy it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise.
  3. 3. 4 Task 1 タスク 1. Choose a pot. 2. Cut and stick in your sketchbook. 3. Do a LARGE line drawing which echoes the shape/silhouette. 4. Divide pot into 6 sections so it appears ‘cracked’. 5. Write down something about the pot (inside the pot): How old is it? Who owns it? Where does it live? Do you think it is valuable? 10 Minutes
  4. 4. Learning Outcomes By the end of the lesson you will have… Learnt how your theme ‘together and apart’ could be explored through the deconstruction and reconstruction of textiles and/or pottery and how ancient traditions such as Kintsugi could be applied to contemporary art; and how a composition can be created using collagraph technique.
  5. 5. 6 Artists who explore the theme of breaking / fixing / rearranging in their work….
  6. 6. 7 Grayson Perry Is a potter and an artist who creates classically shaped vases covered with figures, patterns and text. The revealing and often dark subject matter depicted on these pots is at first disguised by their colourful, decorative appearance. His chosen topics include autobiographical images of himself, his family, as well as references to political events and an investigation of cultural stereotypes. He subverts the craft form of ceramics. He revels in its second- class status within world of fine arts, in order to explore challenging, yet witty and thought provoking themes. ‘A lot of my work has always had a guerrilla tactic, a stealth tactic. I want to make something that lives with the eye as a beautiful piece of art, but on closer inspection, a polemic or an ideology will come out of it’.
  7. 7. 8 “Ceramic Patchwork”
  8. 8. Tony Cragg uses colourful objects to create a ‘jigsaw’ collage of new shapes and compositions.
