Gather a collection of images of artists who have used clay in inspirational ways.
Create two separate collages on your ipad of 15-20 images each from various artists who use clay to create works of art. One collage will be of " functional" ceramics ( bowls, teapots, plates, vases, etc.)
and the other collage will be of non-functional or "art for art's sake" ceramic works of art.
Include the names of the artists on the collage or a separate document so that you can refer to them later.
You will be sharing these collages with your classmates and discussing them as a group.
Ceramic teapot an example of "Functional Clay"
