The Ceramic Slab-Built Soap Dish/Tile project is designed to expose students to working with clay and basic slab-building techniques. Students will be introduced to techniques such as slab-rolling, slipping and scoring and surface treatment. Students will be encouraged to create a soap dish or tile that exhibits some form of alteration to both the basic slab form and surface. Students should research examples from different visual resources and sketch out ideas and rough designs in their sketchbooks prior to beginning.
Examples can be found to the right. The project rubric is attached at the bottom of the page.
