Add the First Coil to a Coil Built Pot

This year, I’m having my students make little planters. I have been telling my students that they are my seeds it is my job to nurture them and make sure they can grow into the wonderful adults they will become. I also told them that these pots will be a reminder of how I want to care for each and every one of them while they are in my class.

So far, we have taken a day to wedge clay and go over clean up expectations for the unit.  On the second day, we learned how to roll a coil and turn it into the base of the pot.

On the third day, we made one more coil and then I showed how to add it onto the base.
