Clay Play

This is our first 3D clay project and it is going to be FUN. Here is the basic premise; cut out a piece of paper or cardboard in a crazy free-form shape. Then, using coils build up letting the clay take you where it wants to go.  I love doing this because no matter how much you plan, once the clay starts to develop it's own shape it could turn out to be anything (and most likely inspire you in a certain direction).  The only rules are that you must start with the shape of your choice, any size you are willing to develop (fire, glaze) and that you use coils, no slabs. 

For this project everyone is welcome to participate, at the finish line we just ask for results to be emailed to one of us for posting on the site. The time limit on this project will be 1 month, which puts us at deadline on the 19th of August. If that sounds like not enough time for you, please do the project anyway and send us results whenever, we will still post them!

If you have any questions feel free to ask, I am flexible and would like to keep it as open as possible.  Meaning you can do just about anything you want...:)

  1. Interesting. So to be sure I'm picking up what you're putting down--- cut out a paper shape and use coils to make it look like that shape? Yes? Can do.
