Studio Art: Coil Pots
This coil pot project was the last project in my Studio Art ceramics unit. These have finally all been finished up and glazed fired. For this project, students were required to make a simple vessel. It did not have to hold liquid. What they did have to show was movement through the vessel through the use of their coils. Some did a really awesome job showing movement, while others didn't seem to understand. Next year, if I repeat this project, I feel I will have to do a better job explaining movement.
Students used plain coils, spiraled coils, braids, and many other coil techniques to create these.
Love this one! One of the best ones1
The one on the left has an awesome variety of coils! No so much movement, but definitely creativity in the types of coils that were used.
The brown glaze with the blue specks is amazing on this piece! I only wish this person would have coordinated the rest of their glaze choices to match that glaze a little better...
