Coil Pots (for AWE Music Group)
Gather these materials from your supply bag.
1
Cover your table and set up materials.
2
Add small pieces of clay into a bowl with a little water. Set aside for now.
3
Make a flat piece of clay. It must be as thick as your pinky finger- no thinner!
4
Use objects from your house to trace shapes.
5
You can make any shape! This will become the bottom of your vessel.
6
Use the fork to mix the clay and water. This is called “slip.” It is like glue for clay!
7
Roll out 1-2 clay coils using your palms. These should also be as thick as your pinky finger!
8
Use the toothpick to create rough marks where the clay will attach. Add slip and press together.
9
To make your vessel larger or smaller as it grows taller, gradually make coils longer or shorter.
10
Wrap up your clay tightly to continue working next week! Throw away newspaper and dried clay dust.
