Chris Sound of Potteries
For this project, I used five bottles that I made as sound artifacts to examine the difference in sound by blowing air into bottles in different sizes. These five bottles are wheel thrown and trimmed with stoneware clay. In order to produce a louder and clearer sound effect, these bottles were made with a rounded and circular shape. They are also applied with shiny white glaze and fired twice in a cone 10 kiln, providing the bottles a cream color with a glossy finish. The reason why I chose this color and finish is because it compliments the circular forms of the bottles. Additionally, I want the viewers of this video to focus on the forms and shapes of the bottles rather than the glaze, and this subtle color with a glossy finish provides that effect.
