  2. Hydria Work-in-Progress

    From the album Sketches by Paul

    Upper parts of the hydria are starting to come together. The container is just over 18" tall at this stage and was wheel thrown in two parts, assembled on the wheel, allowed to dry for a few hours and then given the final shaping/neck-forming. With the addition of the footed-base, the greenware will stand just under 24" tall...that cannon happen until the base is hardened sufficiently to hold the weight of the upper portions.

  3. Hydria - Work-in-Progress

    From the album Sketches by Paul

    Realizing that the greenware portions of the container will all of the assembled parts will weight 12-14 pounds, I changed the plans for the base to be more than just stocky feet. This will dry slowly over night since the wheel thrown pieces and the hand built feet are at different degrees of dryness. All together, the bas will have to be quite dry before assembling the top to the base.

  4. Hydria - Work-in-progress - Horn

    From the album Sketches by Paul

    The horns on this project are the side handles for a hydro-like container. If pulled like one might make a handle for a mug, the large end of the pull would be nearly 2" in diameter...and there are weight and drying issues that make that a poor option. In this instance, the horns started as a 1.5 pound lump of clay pulled over a wooden tool that is sold/marketed as a spout maker. Once the basic form/thickness is established on the spout maker, there is a small amount of traditional pulling involved before forming the twist on the horn.

    Close-up of the ram's head hydra with all parts assembled. At this stage the piece will be allowed to rest until leather hard, then additional details will be carved, scraped, textured, etc.

  8. Hydria - Work-in-Progress - Horn

    From the album Sketches by Paul

    This is the first of the two ram horn handles attached to the hydria project. From the original sketch, the ram's head and horns were to scale as an attachment for the hydra...now, it is starting to feel a little more like a ram's head with a hydra attached. All to say, sometimes you just roll with it and see how things turn out. Some minor alteration of the belly of this pot has been done (i.e. the round form has been elongated slightly)...I'll sleep on this change before making additional alterations. The forming of the ridges on the horn does take a bit of time...probably an hour and a half, plus 2 cups of coffee . -Paul

  11. Community Challenge #1

    Welcome to the community challenge #1 This is a place where we can challenge ourselves alongside other community members to create ceramic works within the constraints set out in each challenge. The Challenge This challenge is to make a piece(s) of ceramics that has been influenced from your research into the sky and/or the atmosphere. Your research can include anything that fits into the topic. Pick an area within the topic that interests you and would like to explore. Try to be creative with your research and how you translate that into an idea for your ceramic work. No specific item needs to be created for this challenge so the choice is up to you. Good luck. The Rules Everybody can enter the challenge, all you need is a registered account on the forum. Work in progress (WIP) images are encouraged. It can help to talk through your research and ideas but please don't spam the topic. Keep the updates informative and succinct. One final entry per community member with an image no larger than 1024 pixels wide. Upload your image to your galleries and attach to the entry post or use the attachment uploader within the post editor. If you don't it may not make it across to the results thread. Only attach one image to your final entry post along with the words "Final Entry - (Forum name)" This will make sure you are not missed out of the results thread. The challenge will run quarterly and will be 1st February to 29th April, 1st May to 30st July, 1st August to 30st October, 1st November to 30st January. The results thread will be posted on the last day of the ending month. It will be a collection of all the entries into one post for condensed viewing and some post challenge discussion. The Rest Remember you are entering for your own enjoyment and there could be a risk that your work develops into something new and exciting. Be considerate of others and don't post opinions without good reasons to back them up. We are all here to improve and progress with our ceramics. Some dates may vary slightly as this is a community run project and it will depend on members having access to the forum. Have any ideas for a challenge? Post them in the ideas thread http://community.ceramicartsdaily.org/topic/7794-submit-your-challenge-ideas/ (If there is anything you feel I have missed out, could be improved or doesn't make any sense please send me a personal message.)
