Clay Pinch Pots


lots of pots

This year, I received a stipend from our PTA for Curriculum Enhancement. I chose to purchase air dry clay. The pinch pots to go along with their Kumeyaay Social Studies Unit and their reading of Indian of the Oaks.

The clay we used is called Mexal White and made by Laguna Clay. The texture is similar to kiln fired when creating with it and has a nice hardness when dry. After drying for a few days, students got to paint them. We talked about how the Kumeyaay did not traditionally paint their pottery but painting with bright colors is lots of fun.
