The Art of Making Sculpture Sculpture Fundamentals - PLAYING WITH IDEAS... In this sculpture class you will learn some of the basic skills for making sculpture from porcelain and other types of paper clay. The objective of this class is learn about seeing forms in a different way - working with forms that have no obvious function. In ceramics function sometimes presents itself through sculpture - for example a sculptural vase, bowl, or lighting form. Sculpture allows us to let go of the obvious - by playing with ideas - in able to discover something new. The class will start with looking at images of sculpture and drawing. It is important that you arrive on time so that you don't miss the introduction. We will also explore the role that light plays on the forms. Due to the whiteness and translucency of the clay we will explore texture and thinness; open and closed forms; scale and proportions. Most of the works you make in this first class will be small. These small sculpture are called maquettes. In the next class you can chose one or two maquettes to develop into a larger sculpture if you wish.
