Carved Bowls

Decorative, functional art assignments make sense for kids. They use bowls every day, so I thought that would be a good way to introduce them to subtractive techniques in sculpture. We threw the bowls on the potter's wheel, and waited a day for them to be leather hard before carving patterns into the surface. Textural surface treatment is especially pleasurable for my students who are blind because they can't see the color.
