Before beginning ceramics unit, students went through a series of hand building techniques to assist with creating their own original idea and making it in clay. We first reviewed a presentation on pinch, coil, and slab. With a small amount of earthenware clay, students practiced each technique along with presentation.
After learning new hand building techniques, art students made a plan in visual journals, created their ideas out of wet clay working through many challenges along the way, waited through drying stages, and now finishing up glazing. Always exciting to see what they get back after the glaze firing. Coming soon...
Students worked with an end in mind, by creating a plan with researching ideas, color schemes, and sketching. We practiced pinch, coil, and slab hand building techniques before beginning the process of putting their plan in play. Glazing will come next.
