Cup and Saucer Sketchbook Assignment Due Friday, October 15th

Your next project in class will be to create a cup and saucer based on a word of your choosing. This word will help you determine the colors, shapes and overall mood of your project. See the examples to the right of past students' projects!

In your sketchbook, choose three words to illustrate. Choose from the list below, or choose your own! Draw out ideas for how the word could be turned into a sculpture that you might be able to use for your pinch pot project.

Remember that there is a cup and a saucer--how could you relate the two together? Think about whether you want your cup and saucer to be functional or sculptural. Draw your sketches in your sketchbook IN COLOR!
