Our first unit in the new year was pottery. We spent three mornings at a pottery studio with a wonderful pottery teacher and the resulting creations were very impressive. As there were just three participants for this unit each student had a wheel to use. On the first week all three made several pots.
During the second class they trimmed the pots, tidying up rough edges and putting a “foot” on the bottom if desired. They also had time to make things by hand if they wished.
The final class was spent glazing which took a while as there were many pots and numerous choices for designs and combinations. We were all excited to see the finished products after their final firing.
Viewing the items from a distance, I would say the potters have done a very good job. I would think several items may find places for display and usage.
special congratulations to B11. I see both concentration and enjoyment on his face. Like the blue plaque, too. Is that the hand of A15 doing the engraving?
I love this! I would love for my kids to take a pottery class. Your kids’ work is just beautiful. Lucky! 🙂
