Unconventional Pot Reflection Post

I think that my pot that I made in this project was somewhat similar to Yee Sookyung’s work. The pot I made and the pots that she makes both incorporate different pots being combined together to create a whole new piece. I think that my pot is still kind of a pot. My ‘pot’ has holes in the design, so it can’t contain any liquids. It has a base, so I can use it as a cool candle holder.

Inspired Object Reflection Post

In this clay project, we had to choose an object that had a meaning to us and create a pot that relates to that object. I decided to use a roll of tape because I like to do a lot of crafting and I think a roll of tape can symbolise that. I incorporated the roll of tape in my pot in the end by stamping imprints on the pot and the lip of the pot. They made abstract circle patterns. I think that if I were to complete this project again, I think that I should sketch out my pot better before I started creating it. I realised that all the weight of the pot was resting on one part and that put a lot of pressure on that area. This led to that part being sensitive and cracking all the time. I’m proud of the fact that I learned how to create a pot by using the coil method. This allowed my pot to transition better.

Clay Slab Relief Reflection Post



One good thing that you can do on a clay slab instead of a wood slab is that you can repair any mistakes you have made. Instead of painting over it, you can simply rub some clay in and it’ll look like how it was before. The clay is also softer than the wood, so carving and making indents is easier. I personally think that the clay slab project was much easier than the wood carving project because the carving process was easier and not as tiring.
