Student Work: Greenwich Community College


Some examples of student work from the evening class at Greenwich Community College, using a “5 second” plate technique:

  1. Roll out the clay to an even thickness using guides.
  2. Imprint textured fabric by rolling onto clay and then removing it.
  3. Place the mold on the clay and cut around the perimeter.
  4. Place the cut out clay on a sponge, face up.
  5. Press the mold onto the clay on the sponge.
  6. Place the plate on a board, let it harden, and sponge the edges.
