My clay slab construction (Turtle Watching) was 9.5’’x8’’x.5’’. It contains rectangular (the slab) and polygonal (turtle shell) shapes and organic forms of the turtle and the water. The slab has real space using placement (objects in front are larger), and has real depth (1/2’’ decreasing slope). Dark values include dark blue&brown, midtones: blue-green, lights: light green, creating a cool color scheme. There are tactile textures in the seaweed, shells&turtle. There is informal balance but variety in impressments used throughout the piece. The focal point is the turtle because it is the largest object&3D. There is a rhythm in the shapes and textures use while your eyes are moved from the turtle to the detailed impressions. It is united by the repeating textures. The title tells about the purpose because the turtle is the focal point of the piece. The goal was to create something with aesthetic movement. I was successful in this with the gradual color change and use of curved waves, making it a more literal and relating piece. I like this piece because of it’s color and fluidness, but whish I had constructed it better because it broke in the kiln when bisquefire. I believe my piece was successful because I used the illusions of space (placement) to create a moving&depth filled background (with 3D shapes, curved lines, and a gradual change in color from foreground to background).
