We looked at the ceramic work of Kimmy Cantrell in a Prezi I created and focused on his asymmetrical relief masks. We reviewed the definition of asymmetrical balance and relief sculpture. We compared and contrasted Cantrell's masks and the facial features. We then created paper patterns to use directly on our clay slab. We used clay tools to create impressed texture on the base of our relief mask. The pieces were fired, then glazed and re-fired.
