  8. 8. Robert Arneson Starting in the 1960s, Arneson and several other California artists began to abandon the traditional manufacture of functional items in favor of using everyday objects to make confrontational statements. The new movement was dubbed Funk Art, and Arneson is considered the father of the ceramic Funk movement Arneson used common objects in his work, which included both ceramic sculptures and drawings. He appeared in many of his own pieces — as a chef, a man picking his nose, a jean-jacketed hipster in sunglasses.

  11. 11. How to make a rattle Start with a solid ball of clay that you can cup your hands around. Cut the solid ball in half. Pinch out both sides as evenly as possible. The walls should be about 1/4 inch thick. Pat each half down on the table to make the rim wider for a larger surface area. To make it into a rattle… roll 3-6 small balls of clay and wrap them out to dry. Place them inside one half of your orb, wrapped in a paper towel. Wrap up your work for the day When almost leatherhard, score and slip the two pinch pots together, with the balls of clay inside. Poke a small hole in the orb so it doesn’t EXPLODE Let the TRANSFORMATION begin: Make a face for your orb, transform it to have any emotion, or transform it into something with even more significance.
  12. 12. Using the PINCH method… pinch from the bottom up, two equally sized, rounded pots. The walls of each should be equal and should be about 1 cm thick.
  13. 13. What will you be graded on? Does it make noise? Does it have a FOOT Does it have RELIEF features? Does it have INTAGLIO features? Does it have a variety of TEXTURES? Is your piece BALANCED? Physically? Visually? Was is crafted well? CRAFTSMANSHIP? How nice and thoughtful was the application of glaze? Was it completed on time? BISQUEWARE? GLAZEWARE?
