Clay is one of the oldest, foremost mediums used to create three dimensional images. Use this project as a jump start into exploring the sculptural aspects of clay. The goal is to move past purely functional ware and into the more obvious artistic side of clay. Abstract, realistic, and caricature pieces are fair game in this project.
Clay is in three dimensions, so this is a great project to help you consciously work with the three-dimensional elements and design of your piece's form.
