We finally finished our beautiful ceramic pieces. The glaze firing went off without a hitch except that the delay I had programmed into the kiln seemed to not have worked? It fired hours before I expected it to, but luckily this did not affect the glazing, it simply meant I did not know to check on it at the right time.
Regardless of my inability to set a delay, the girls did an amazing job at creating wonderful, and sophisticated vessels. If you remember from my previous post Clay Hurray, we were creating vessels for things that were precious to us. Students interpreted this in so many different ways, and that was exactly the point. I am so pleased with the results, I’d say this project was a great success. I enjoyed it much more than the clocks and plates last year.
Oh, and I had a little photo shoot with these ones. We had a white piece of paper left from the AP Ceramics students photographing their work.
