Studio Art 360: Hands on with CLAY!

Ed Hamilton’s Website – Making of a Bas Relief Sculpture

Close Up – How are you working with this idea of SCULPTURE? http://edhamiltonworks.com/images/lincoln/bas_relief/slave_10_detail.jpg

Goals:

  • 1.2P: Shape an artistic investigation of an aspect of present-day life using a contemporary practice of art or design.
  • What has been your FAVORITE or LEAST FAVORITE part of working with clay. Please tell me WHY you LOVE or DON’T LOVE using this material. Please be specific.

What do you see as needing to be RESOLVED for the end of the project TOMORROW? Know that it is the LAST day to work.
