Seventh and eighth graders in the pottery wheel arts elective class finished their work this week by glazing their thrown ceramic works. The transition from a raw, amorphous lump of clay into a functional piece of pottery is a journey including many different steps. In the beginning days of the course, students experimented with strategies to succeed at the first, crucial step: centering clay on the wheel. Ask a student from the class about all four steps they focused on while creating their pottery, and be on the lookout for their final creations!
