1) Our vase is a Amphora, it was used for the storage of liquids and solids such as grain
2) I did the coloring of the pictures and some of the drawing
3) Scraffito- The scratching away of a layer Registers- Horizontal design that separates parts of a story
My artist's name is Dario Escobar and he takes different objects such as soccer balls, basketballs, baseball bats and skateboards and turns them into amazing sculptures. He works in Guatemala and tries to show the cultural value from the different sports objects. Escobar tries to show a different point of view by showing the bats cut up or the soccer balls inside out instead of making them perfect and super appealing. His work is inspiring to me because he doesn't try to cover any imperfections up and he just lets everything show. His work draws me in because it is different from other pieces of work I have seen which makes it unique. http://www.darioescobar.com/
1) I think the round one with the stars carved in it will work the best because you can push it down in the clay and I think it will show up the most.
2) I think I might have difficulties with the one I pushed into the brick because I do not think it will show up very well.
3) The style that was the most difficult to make was the square with the add ons because it was hard to make the perfect square and hard to add the circles since they were so small.
4) The easiest style to make was the cylinder with the stripes because it was easy to form and to carve into the clay.
Tripod Mug Sketch:
1) The stamps that worked well were the ones that had carvings in them or were round. These ones worked better because the clay could more easily be indented.
2) I think the practice will influence my stamps because I know which stamps work better so I will try to recreate them or make them similar.
