Happy New Year January 9, 2010

Eric Orr, Sax Arts and Crafts Representative
At our January meeting, Eric Orr guided teachers in a clay architecture lesson. A variety of wood blocks and rods were wrapped in newspaper and organized to suggest a building. Guides were used to roll clay into 3/8 inch slabs. Multiple textures were applied to the surface of the slabs with rollers, stamps, and found objects. After the decorative effects were added, participants embellished the architectural structres with building features like windows, doors, roofs, and whimsical additions. The wooden armature was removed prior to the clay becoming leather hard.
