Each student gets a clay circle for the base of the coil pot.
|Marble sized balls of clay are rolled into coils on Masonite boards.|
The pot is constructed on a paper towel so it will not stick to anything. Coils are built up to give height to the sides.
|A cookie cutter clay leaf will be added to the second circle which will be the lid.|
|Coils need to be pinched together and smoothed on the inside |
so the pot will not fall apart.
|The teacher uses a wooden spatula to paddle the coil pot |
into a sphere shape.
|Jack-o-lanterns are sent home with a small candle inside |
to light on Halloween!
