Through guided instruction students will learn pinch pot techniques to create unique turtle and frog shaped vessels. Other ceramic hand building techniques will be taught as well so the students can embellish their pieces with coils and textures from nature. Students will use colored ceramic stains and glazes to finish the pieces. The pieces will be left to dry then fired in a kiln. Ms. Rogers will let students when they will be ready for pick-up at Terrestrial Forming Pottery Studio.
