learning, using & teaching metal clay, and other aspects of life

Basic Shapes

Posted by C Scheftic on 2010/02/02

I spent much of today trying to sort out spring teaching schedule; and it’s still not done.

Working with the products and tools is one aspect of the classes, but there are also questions of design. What is your goal? What look do you want to achieve? What message do you want to convey? How much attention do you want to draw?

And, thinking about that aspect of teaching brought to mind a couple of basic samples I made very early on:

Two Pendants with Plume Design

Both contain the same basic “artwork” in their textures. But one is round, and domed, while the other is oval, flat, and layered. Yes, there are many things one could to to “improve” either one, but the point of these two is just to start the discussion about comparing and contrasting two similar yet different executions of a very simple design.

As they now stand, which one appeals most to you? Why?
