My Students

We are a public high school with a diverse student body that is growing with each school year. Our students are 9th through 12th grade (ages 14 to 18). We have over 3,000 students, including kids with special needs as well as mentally and physically challenged students. This is the only high school in our town, and we offer a full range of classes and electives. In order to maintain a rich of curriculum with authentic materials for our students, we seek donations from DonorsChoose.org to help supplement our resources.

My Project

Ceramic art is timeless. In fact, some of the oldest human artifacts are fragile, yet durable, pieces of ceramic. From useful objects like plates and bowls, to sculptural works that express artistic ideas, ceramics existed in every culture and tell the stories of the people that lived before recorded history. Glaze plays a vital role in the ceramic process. It seals the ceramic surface, protects carvings/designs/patterns, and makes the piece more durable.

My students will use this clear glaze as the final step in the ceramic firing process.

The glaze will serve to protect their work and make it food-safe, which means that they will be able to eat or drink from their pottery safely.

With this glaze, I will be able to teach my students new techniques, including pottery dipping, to achieve different effects with their ceramic work. It will expand on their knowledge and give them skills that they can take with them into future endeavors.
