Terracotta Portrait Pots


Students will use air dry terracotta clay to create their own portrait pots. These clay pots can feature the face of a real person or a character from their own imagination. Using hand-building techniques and exploring clay sculpture they will make a functional piece of pottery that does not need to be fired.

INNOVATION COMPONENTS:

Working with clay strengthens both fine and gross motor skills while helping students learn how to represent ideas in three-dimensional forms. By incorporating facial features on their pots they will explore both emotion and the basic facial structures that make faces easily recognizable to the human mind.

CAREER COMPONENT:

Plastic Surgeons operate on a person’s face or body in order to repair or reconstruct the area. In order to properly be able to correct or improve a physical feature they have to have a good understanding of it structure in order to achieve the right result just like a sculptor.


SUPPLIES:

· Terracotta Air Dry Clay

· Clay tools
