Department of Fine and Performing Arts, Loyola University Chicago Ceramics FNAR 120, Hand building Kate Biderbost, E-mail: [email protected] Project #1: Coiling Using earthenware clay you will replicate a historical pot with the coiling technique. You are going to have to spend a little time in the library and/or on the Internet. The results of your exploration will be an image of a historical vessel, which you will replicate. Your final pot should be 10 inches tall. Your vessel must be correct in its proportions to the original. Building your pot to 10 inches and keeping the original proportions will be one of your main challenges. You will create a template before we begin building and it will be necessary for you to reference your template continuously while building. When picking a pot to replicate don’t underestimate yourself. A more simple pot may seem easier to build but it isn’t showing any risk. You can choose to reference the original surface or create your own. All surfaces will most likely be added after the pot is built but still leather hard. Do not let your pot dry outbefore your surface is added . Once your pot is dry no surface can be added.
