Coil Pots, 4th Grade

My fourth graders have been creating coil pots.  Students learned to create coils, and attach using the score and slip method. Since this is their first experience with coils, I also give them the option to create a pinch pot for the base.  I do this because many students struggle to create a strong enough base with only coils.  
 So far, these look wonderful. We still need to fire and glaze them.  I will post more pictures when they are finished.

Clay Cupcakes, 3rd Grade

My school has been doing clay for weeks now.  These are the clay cupcakes made by my third graders.  Students used the pinch pot method to create the top and bottom of the cupcake.  Students also used a silicone cupcake liner to create a realistic look to the bottom of the cupcake.  Instead of glaze, they used tempera paint to add color.  Overall, these were a huge success!
