Textured Slab Mug
This project is designed as an introduction to the hand-building method of slab construction. Students will utilize the slab roller to roll out large 1/4" slabs of clay. By using paper cut out templates, students will build cut and piece together their slabs to create a basic mug form. Students will be expected to alter the basic cylinder form in some unique way.
Students are expected to employ additive building methods in the production of their slab container (pulling or extruding a handle, for example). Original and unique texturing is encouraged. The finished container should reflect a cohesive aesthetic and theme.
