Trompe L'oeil

My Ceramics I class just finished up a lesson on Trompe L'oeil imagery. If you are not familiar, trompe l'oeil means to fool the eye. Traditionally, painters have used this technique to trick their viewers into believing their paintings were the objects they painted and not just a picture on the canvas. Though using this technique for ceramics is a little different. Their goal was to take something that was not typically made out of clay and recreate it using clay so that as the viewer, you couldn't tell it was not the original object. Below are some pictures during production and post production.

You can see all of these in person at North Paulding's Art Show/Silent Auction on May 26th at the Dallas Municipal Court. McClure Middle school will also be hosting this event with us. Hope to see you there!
