SECTION S - POTTERY AND CLAY SCUPTURE

WHAT WE DO

 

The Pottery and Clay Sculpture section volunteers are responsible for coordinating the pottery competitions and arranging the pottery and clay sculpture displays that take place as part of the Fine Arts display in the Tea Pavilion at the show each year.

Pottery

Pottery is the ceramic act of making pottery wares, of which major types include earthenware, stoneware and porcelain.

 

Pottery is made by forming a clay body into objects of a required shape and heating them to high temperatures in a kiln which removes all the water from the clay, which induces reactions that lead to permanent changes including increasing their strength and hardening and setting their shape. 

Clay sculpture

 

The most easily recognized form of sculpting is clay modeling, that is, the creation of a 3-dimensional piece of art typically using some type of clay:  Plastilina (oil-based clay also known as plasteline, plasticium, plasticine), self-hardening (non-firing) clay, ceramic/pottery clay, wax or other polymer-based material.

 

Clay is highly versatile, extremely easy to work with, and the ideal modelling material for the beginner as well as the seasoned sculptor.
