I made a paper Spock based off of a Star Trek: TOS Mirror Mirror poster I have. I plan to attach it to a large A1 sheet that i’ve created a random pattern/image on from drawing inks. I think I will attach a quote (I am very tempted to cross fandoms, and throw in a Star Wars quote out of badness!)

studying abstract in history of art…

so to get a ‘feel’ of abstract we were basically let loose with supplies and varying mediums on which to use them from mdf to card to newspaper. It was a lot of fun. My favourite is the one I did with drawing inks and glue which some people say reminds them of a field of violets which I was really pleased about!

I really enjoyed making coil pots in class, I had drawn up a few designs as to what i would like before class, but of course I didn’t stick rigidly to it as I wanted to experiment and I will go back to the initial designs once I’ve got a hang of the technique to a level I’m happy with (even though it is quite basic)

I’m still struggling a little with the clay as I find it hard to work with at times as it can be hard to mould and shape when I’ve not a great deal of upper body strength and when I find the clay very tough initially.

I did enjoy coil pots a bit more than the pinch pots as with coil pots I was able to take smaller pieces and roll them into coils and with the pinch pots I needed a bit more muscle strength.
