Students will learn how to manipulate the surface of the clay using various tools.

Details:

Students will make some functional pottery such as a spoon dish which can be used and or given as a gift.

Students will be encouraged to make expressive creations such as an animal that can be painted with underglazes and glaze.

Students will be stamping, and making impressions in creations with found objects, leaves, seashells, stamps, and special clay stamps applied with a small roller.

Dried creations will be fired for the first time so that students can glaze (and underglaze) their pieces. Their glazed work will be fired again. Note: glazing makes it waterproof.
