In this lesson, students will be encouraged to think creatively while learning how to handbuild a gargoyle head. This project is all about thinking outside the box to twist, emphasize, and invent human features on a clay bust. Each gargoyle will be a unique result of how the student that made it considers the human face and head structure.
Techniques learned or practiced in this lesson include slipping and scoring, pinching, coiling, modeling, trimming, and glazing.
