Per the usual occurance with anything liquid - there was one spill in class today. No worries, though - students easily tamed the unruly blob with a spoon and some wet paper towels.
Both 7th and 8th grade students glazed today. 7th graders worked on adding various hues to their clay balloon forms, while 8th graders began the finishing touches of color to their Anthropomorphic bottles.
In addition to discussing how glaze and paint compares to one another, students got to move around the room as they selected the glazes to use on their pieces. 7th graders will finish tomorrow and 8th graders will have until Wednesday. It is always fun and exciting to see how the powdery glazes transform into bright lustrous colors in just one kiln firing!
