Ceramics - wheel throwing

Don't forget you have a second wheel thrown piece due for Quarter Two.  This piece will be graded on its merits and not just completion.  It will need to be an even, thickness that is not too heavy, and it also need to have a trimmed foot.  Go back and watch the videos about throwing on the wheel if you feel like you need it.  OK?

Ceramics - Red and Black Figure Pottery

Follow the link below to find out more about red and black figure Greek pottery.  View the slideshow.  During the firing process and if oxidation (smoke) occurs, the smoke can turn the unglazed portions of the pot black.  Comment below with an original thought.  Do not repeat ideas.

The site is from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
