The learning objectives we were working on were; I can identify and use form & I can model; pinch, pull or roll clay. We began by rolling our clay piece into a sphere (form) and then used our thumb and fingers to pinch the clay into a pot shape. After the pieces were bisque fired we discussed how glaze is different from paint and that it is made of silica and how when silica is exposed to high temperatures it becomes glass and coats our pinch pot.
