Ceramics – (Grades 5-8)
Ceramics Club meets once a week. Students work on handbuilding skills. Projects include free-form bowls, cups, and plates to get used to how the pottery responds to pressure. More advanced projects are spoon people, rolled out clay for face masks and animal masks, lids for vessels, and how to form 3-legged vessels. Handles will also be explored.
All pieces are brought to Casa Galiano Art Studios for bisque firing in the kiln (www.casagaliano.com).
Then various firing techniques will be used on the pieces such as Raku firing, and Obvara firing.
The students are learning properties of clay and glazes as they change from one state to another. The class is held weekly until the end of the school year.
