DESIGN AND REFINE SIMPLY MEANS THIS:
- Begin by using one of the hand building techniques and start making your visual journal a reality.
- Make sure you keep your clay piece moist until you are completely done, otherwise the piece will dry out and break. At that point, you will need to start over.
- Craftmanship still counts with clay. Use a sponge and smooth out pieces, make sure your rim is even, it stands straight up, it’s not top heavy, bottom heavy. Think and look. Then, turn in your final product along with your Visual Journal. Make sure you re-read your rubric.
- Keep refining your piece each day until you are ready to move on to the create phase-the kiln!
