The Kiln is Loaded and Notan!

Today students finished up glazing their projects! We also started on a new project which will be our final project of the year.

This project will explore positive and negative space. The type of art we will be creating comes from a Japanese concept of pairing light and dark next to each other. This art form is called Notan.

Students today simply did some research and created sketches for their projects which we will start next Wednesday.

In the meantime here are some examples:
