  8. Animal traits • Just like humans, animals have different characteristics and personalities. They can be known for being brave, loyal, smart, slow, gentle, sneaky…

  9. Draw your chosen animal in 3 different views because it is sculpted “in the round”

  10. CERAMICS • HAND BUILDING • WHEEL THROWING Pinch pot slab coil

  11. CLAY • A variety of earthy materials formed by the breakdown of granite rocks over millions of years. • PLASTIC CLAY: moldable, moist clay that can be formed into a variety of things

  12. Leatherhard • Clay that is starting to dry but has not done so completely; firm clay • Feels cool and damp • Very fragile, breaks easily • Can be scraped and smoothed

  13. Greenware • Clay that is completely dried out (bone dry) and is ready to be fired in the kiln. • very light brown color

  14. Bisqueware= bisquit, baked • Clay that has been fired in the kiln once and is ready to be painted or glazed • White color • Hard as a rock

  15. soft Clay drying hard

  16. Kiln • A special oven or furnace that can reach very high temperatures and is used to bake, or fire clay.

  17. Firing • Firing is the process of baking and hardening pottery. • Clay is hardened by heating it to a high temperature, thus fusing the clay particles. • Temperature in kilns can reach 2500 degrees.

  18. Scoring • Scratching the surface of two clay pieces when joining them together • Then add slip to create a bond between 2 pieces of clay

  19. Slip • a mixture of clay and water that serves as a glue and is placed on scored areas of clay.

  20. Connecting Clay • If slip acts as an adhesive, and scoring makes two pieces of clay like the opposite sides of a zipper, then they should stick together permanently.

  21. COIL construction • Long snake-like ropes of clay that can be joined together to form a pot, bowl, or vase

  22. Slab • Joining shapes together; thick sheets of clay. Roll it out like a pancake then cut out the desired shape.

  23. Sculpture • An artwork created in 3-Dimensional form

  24. In the round • A work of art which is viewed from all sides and has width, height, as well as depth

  25. Texture – the feel of a surface
