We are currently in the 2nd week of our ceramic project. The students have been working on constructing a coil pot form inspired by the work of Kirk Mangus. We were excited to have the opportunity to see Mr. Mangus' work at our recent field trip to MOCA Cleveland in January. The inspiration for the middle school students were focused on the large face jugs we viewed at the retrospective show. Each student has begun to form the final shape and size of their jug and the facial features will be added next week. They are finding the right balance between the material and the scale of the piece to be a challenge, but are showing great resilience and improvement in their skills.
