Six Matching Mugs~Final Project

For my final project in my clay throwing class, I first attempted to make a teapot but ended up with two bowls instead. So, I decided to switch to something I knew I could make. Six matching mugs. By this time in class I felt like I knew what I was doing. I was able to center my clay without spending too much time. I has also gotten very good at pulling up my clay up to create a soldier straight cylinders, with wall that were pretty even.

For the glaze I chose my favorite Yellow Salt. On the first mug I wore a glove to dip it. I missed a section and ended up re-dipping it. You can see the brown spots on the bottom where my fingers held it. For the rest I used the tongs to hold while I only did one dip.

On the double dipped mug, on the inside the glaze covered the throwing marks and it has more of a shine instead of the matte finish I prefer. I am glad the glaze lid would not come off, and that I took it as a sign, NOT to dip them all twice.

I really do like my fingermarks on the one, or as I dubbed them Rita’s Mark. Since my classmate intentional put them on her pieces as her signature, such an awesome idea!

Photoshop II Movie Poster Rough Draft

For our final we are to create a poster and cd cover for the SFCC Film Department’s movie ~ The Last Prisoner. Above are my first two rough drafts. I realized too late that I need to be more generic with the face on my women.

Images

All of my pictures are from Pixabay and are © free images. I was very pleased with the variety to select from to demonstrate the story of the Omega prison.

Improvements

I will most likely develop the version with the men in the shape of the omega symbol. I will remove the large face. Swap out the top and bottom images and make the dancer a black silhouette. I will also look for a better font and remove my favorite part 😦 which is the hand with the butterfly on the finder.

Less is more!
