this class had an opportunity to use hand building techniques to
create “wall pockets” made of clay. Clay was rolled out the first
week and shaped into the pocket. Students then chose a texture to
transfer onto their clay using a pattern sheet and a rolling pin.
The clay piece was then fired and was ready for glazing at the
second class. Everyone chose the color for their piece and sponged
the paint on using a small sea sponge. This will go back in the
kiln for one more round of firing and then will be
ready for displaying!
