Art 1 Ceramics

Maria Martinez: World-Renowned Potter of San Ildefonso Pueblo

To learn more about Maria and her life's work click the link below.

In our classroom we used the coil method to construct our pots. Students were to draw a sketch of their maria pot including the use of their initials in a motif to later be carved out on the shoulder of the vessel.  And now for a little fun. "Which one of these things is not like the other?" The first Art 1 student to comment below and tell me which item does not belong in these photos gets a surprise! 

Ready to be fired!
