  1. This is similar to the free form clay work that we are doing in class because of the movement shown in each piece. The pieces shown are abstract but still clean. It looks like he didn’t force the materials he was working with he just let them almost form themselves into these unique pieces. -Michaela Browning

  2. These pieces are very interesting in the shape that they form. They are like ours because of how they are not just straight up but in varying shape.

  3. the movement in his pieces are similar to our free form pots we are making. All of ours are very unique and no two look alike just like his pieces of work.

  4. it looks really cool. it has the same free form like we are doing because they all just flow freely in and out and take different shapes and sizes.

    They look really cool. They just go with the flow and have a mind of their own, just like our free form pots.

  6. They are interesting. They are similar to our free form clay work because they flow freely and there are no other works that are same shape.

  7. he just goes with it, like you know he didn't know it would turn out like this and it still looks awesome so that's how it relates to ours because we don't really know how it's gonna turn out and we just go with it

  9. you cant even tell its clay, i looks like glass. i like how he just kinda goes with the flow. i is like ours in the sense that it is not symmetrical and its so flowy

  10. They are similar because they kinda look like free formed pots like what we are doing with ours. I think Arp's sculptures are very unique and different.

  11. I love how smooth they are. They are similar to the free form because they all take their own shape. There's no real pattern to them.

  12. i think these are kind of dumb and pointless. it doesn't look like he really put too much effort into them either. these are similar to our free form stuff because they are both made with clay.

  13. It kind of just goes however it wants like ours but I don't think it looks very cool or difficult to make -casey
