Nut Job by Crysums Nut Job by Crysums
Ur...I GUESS this is figurative...cause the descrip says "Any three dimensional object or structure created in the round which can be seen from all perspectives except the bottom or back" and it IS round kinda...Man their categories for sculpture suck and confuse me Dx

SO YEA. It ceramics class we had to make 2 pinchpots (you take clay...and pinch it...into a pot...I hate them) and smack 'em together to create a circle/oval thinger...and then make the circle/oval thinger into some object. I...had no inspiration of a round object to make from it. Most everyone was doing FRUIT. So I didnt feel like doing a fruit. Although it was originally gonna be a watermellon. But then I thought 'wtf you wont be able to tell if its a damn egg or a watermelon unglazed' and so 30 minutes before class/the critique when they were due...I sat in the hall outside outside our classroom and squished and pushed the clay all around into grooves and shit and made me a walnut. And it was the BEST piece in class (not being egotisical...several of my other classmates said that as well). So it fired fine then I glazed it. The next class after it had been glazed I went to search for my lovely glazed walnut...and found it split in 2...cracks all over it. I was so sad and cried (only a little cause I hate crying in public) and pretty much just sat there the whole class hold the 2 halves together.

Then I got home and molded a blob of clay crappily to look like the part of the walnut you EAT and took this pic. That papertowl is there cause the slay blob was still wettish and was staining my walnut xD;

So there is the sad sad tale of my lovely walnut :c

Clay used- um....I...dont know....but it fires at cone 6 lol 8D
Glaze- ...he called it ';Pac Man' o___O I think it was spelled like ';Pactman' or something...either way its a copper colour. Raku glaze/fire too.

PS- I glued my walnut together. Fixing up those photos now.

xDDD I actually never took ceramics in high school. I was kind of like ';pssh why the feck would I take THAT? I'm going to be an ART teacher not a CERAMICS teacher" xD; And we never really did anything much in Art class that required clay or the 3d.
Ok that kinda sounds like I was saying ceramics isnt art xD; I didnt mean it that way >>; I meant like I thought I would never need to know ceramics cause I was gonna be teaching the drawing and painting type art xD;;

In Art 1...we only got to paint twice I believe. Otherwise all we use was pencil, charcoal, and pastels. Art 2 and Art 3 were that AND paint. And figure drawings. Art 4 was the first time we ever did anything 3d and we didnt have to use clay. I did though. On one small part and...good god I sucked ass at it xD; -didnt understand how to make it hallow- That project actually isnt anywhere here on DA though...since when I brought it home the lil clay thing fell off and its arm and tail broke up on the stairs :/ -has yet to fix it-
