Georgetown artists are finishing up their clay projects that they began before the holiday break. They have been anxiously waiting for their pieces to be fired in the kiln one more time after applying their glazes. Here are some of the pieces that we are finishing up!
Today we wrapped up six straight days of clay projects in the art room – that’s over 500 projects and about 700 pounds of clay, whew! And the work isn’t over yet…next it is on to bisque firing, glazing, and firing again. (Sorry Georgetown…the electric bill for November and December might be a smidge higher than usual!)
Here’s an early peek at the clay projects Georgetown’s artists created this month. Each grade learned a new clay building skill, including pinch pots, creating texture, rolling coils, and throwing a slab (always a favorite with 5th grade!)
Stay tuned for pictures of the finished pieces.
