We have been working hard on planning and building our clay totems. This year students were able to make their totem into a pencil holder or mug to bring more function to their piece. Learning how to build new forms has been a fun challenge. The kiln is being loaded and will be fired for the first time next week. After the totems are bisque fired we will be able to glaze them and then do a glaze firing.
Here are a few photos of our work so far...
