Slab Container With Lid
This project is a follow-up to the slab mug project. The slab mug project was intended to give students an introduction to the basic concepts of slab building. The slab container project is intended to assist students in deepening their understanding of the slab-building process, and to increase the level of precision and measurement in their slab construction.
Students are expected to employ both additive (sprigging) and subtractive (carving) methods in the production of their slab container. Original and unique texturing is encouraged. The finished container should reflect a cohesive aesthetic and theme.
Step-by-step technique illustrations will be posted soon.
The rubric for this project is attached at the bottom of this page.
