The Slab

Next project…..THE SLAB! Sounded a little intimidating but the roller looked really cool. Once in class I got started by SLAMMING My clay down over and over to flatten it out. (that felt REALLY good) I then put it between two pieces of canvas and cranked it between the roller. Cool… Uniform flat clay. I then cut out a bottom and a rectangle and used a cardboard mold to make my base. I had sketched out some ideas for what I wanted to do and using Tanner and his love of lizards for my inspiration I wanted ivy with a lizard crawling down the side of the pot.
Little did I know that lizards were one of the master potter, Patty’s trademarks.
