Coil Pot Project
Students will build two pot of their choosing using the pinching method. One will have textures applied by pushing various tools into the clay to create patterns. The second will be burnished and have a scratched design applied. Students will experiment with burnishing, applying textures and painting designs with slip. We will discuss cultures that used this technique in their pottery and explore varying styles. Students will bring in a spoon for extra credit and complete the Isaiah 64 worksheet for homework after their first day working with clay.
Students will see the video Maria Martinez: Indian Pottery of San Ildefonso (Documentary, 1972, VHS) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SkUGm87DE0k
While watching the video, Students must write ten thoughts including interesting facts and questions. We will discuss these thoughts after the video.
