Presentation Transcript
ceramic fish how to get started
Ceramic fish…how to get started
  • Look for examples of real fish…study and sketch out fins, tails, eyes, mouths and general body shapes
  • Sketch out a stylized version (general or simplified manner) of your fish design
  • Plan for areas of pattern, texture and decoration (relief and incised)

Ceramic fish…creating the hollow body
  • Begin to create your fish using two pods as the main form
  • Attach the pods together trapping air (like a balloon)
  • Paddle the hollow pod into the basic body shape you want
  • Begin creating and attaching the dorsal fin, tail and side fins

Ceramic fish…adding the design
  • Refine the fins, tails and eye areas by incising or adding relief pieces
  • Form and gently twist the body so the fish appears to be moving through water
  • Make sure to adjust the fins and tail so the fish will be able to standupright…keep the head and tail balanced so it doesn’t tip

Finally add decorative elements to make the fish uniquely yours…you may also create your fish’s environment as a base (coral, sea grass, rocks, etc)

  • Carve lines, shapes, symbols and patterns into the body
  • Add areas of texture
  • Make sure your designs are deep enough…remember that

glaze is thick!
