Introduction to Ceramics Coil building Projects

So very pleased with the coil construction that is occurring in my classroom. Students have built a cylinder showing no movement and presently are building vases showing movement. This assignment is challenging, keeping the vase symmetrical and keeping coils the same size (not to small or to big).

Part of the assignment is also thinking creatively and adding texture or an exterior surface design to their pieces. Some students are extremely creative and others well, or not. Keeping the work symmetrical and adding design to the exterior surface is a tuff task but the students have done a wonderful job.

The semester is coming to a close in about 4 weeks and today I just presented the demo on Slab construction, the last of the hand building techniques. I will post pictures of the slab work in the near future. Enjoy your Week!
