Junior Kindergarten: Learning About Pottery

A big thank you to Sasha Ruiz, our Junior Kindergartener Faye’s grandmother, for coming in to teach our Junior Kindergarten class about pottery. A potter herself, Sasha brought clay and pottery tools for each student to make a pendant for a necklace. She will bring the creations back to her kiln to fire, then bring them back to Tobin for the students to glaze, and then back again to fire into final pieces.

The students loved exploring with different textured tools and stamps to make patterns in the clay, and saw the effect spritzing water on the clay had to make it softer and smoother.
