The 2nd graders finished their coil flower pots, and are now scratching in their designs. The pots have not been fired, and the students are practicing a technique called sgraffito, where they scratch through a layer of glaze to show the clay underneath. Students are illustrating life cycles on the pots, either the life cycle of a frog, butterfly, or flower. If you look closely in 2 of the photos, you’ll see their sketches that they are working from. After the pots are fired, they will be planting seeds of their own!
