Some very happy kids

Grade 6 students from TM Roberts came to work on an pottery project with Karen at Parkland Middle School. The students made bowls which connected back to a study on the environment. While the students were in their regular classroom they researched the impact of disposable-ware, particularly plastic and styrofoam, on the environment. Then, once the bowls were finished being fired and glazed the students took their prize pottery projects back to their school and used them for a celebratory lunch. The students awareness on the impact of disposable ware was heightened and as a class they discussed more ways they could help reduce the amount of garbage going into the landfill.

Another glaze firing

Back to back glaze firing again. I really liked how Ev's birdfeeder turned out and Dawn's tray. Hopefully they will take time out from basking in the mexican sun to check them out.I also like how some of the new glaze combinations turned out on the fridge if I can just remember what I used??? Not much for sunshine here today,overcast and rainy. It is a good day to go back to the studio and get some work done. Have a great day Caroline
