How can mythical building beasts or creatures from around the world influence the creation of your clay sculpture?
Welcome to the exciting world of sculpture. Your students will learn about the historical significance and current practice of using sculptural creatures as a vehicle for storytelling, protection, decoration or to serve a functional purpose on buildings, entranceways and gardens across cultures. These reference images will spark students to create a ceramic sculpture using hand-building techniques.
By the end of the Clay: Building Beasts program, students will:
- Use appropriate terminology related to ceramic arts.
- Assess historical and current examples of building beasts related to their form and function.
- Demonstrate an ability to construct a clay beast using a pinch pot and additional hand-building techniques.
