CLAY MODELLING, POTTERY AND SCULPTURE

At Art Rickshaw, we bring regular classes to all those of you, who are interested in exploring this spectacular form of creative media. We conduct classes that specialise in clay modelling and pottery. Sculpting using clay is a very versatile form of art.

Sculpture is the only branch of the visual arts that is specifically concerned with expressive three-dimensional form. The definition of sculpture over the centuries has evolved. The roots of sculpture originally employed carving techniques, involving the removal of material. This was made during prehistoric times to be used in rituals and for spiritual support. Furthermore, modelling techniques were also used in an array of materials: clay, stone, ceramic, classic metals such as bronze, bone and antler as well as precious gold, silver, and jade. Moreover, many different painting techniques have been used in making sculpture, including tempera, oil painting, gilding and enamel. Since the dawn of Modernism, there has been an absolute freedom of procedure and choice of material. One of Pablo Picasso's most famous sculptures included bicycle parts. Alexander Calder and other modernists made spectacular use of painted steel. Recent sculptors have used stained glass, tools, machine parts, hardware and consumer packaging to fashion their works.
