Ceramics: The De-Constructed Cube

Create & Produce

  • Students will apply their understanding of their ACTION PLAN, by building a 3-D model based off of their designed sketch.


I’d like you to think about how you will best approach today’s class.  What types of work can you get done and what is your GOAL moving forward with this period.  How will this time affect your tomorrow’s class period?

Review with neighbors the relationships of the SHAPES to FORMS.   When you look at your cube close…what types of  FORMS can you see being created by removing / adding clay?
