First Project: Elephants on Parade • Create an elephant using pinch pots and additive methods of clay building • All elephants will be standing on 4 legs • Our goal is to be realistic in FORM & imaginative in SURFACE • The building process will be similar for all of us, but details, surface decoration (carvings, 3D designs), and overall personality of your elephant are up to you. • Perhaps it symbolizes something personal about you?
