3rd grade - clay pinch pots
Our first project in the third grade is a clay cup using the pinch pot construction method. Each student was given a chunk of clay and guided through the process of building a cup. The cups have dried and have been bisque fired. Today and tomorrow students will be painting 3 layers of glaze onto their projects. I expect to do the first glaze fire in the kiln Wednesday night and finish up on Thursday night. Expect the students to bring their projects home on Friday!
We had a few absences due to illness or travel. Only one student did not get back in time for the bisque fire. He will be able to complete his project next week.
The students have been having a FABULOUS time on this project!
