We had so much fun creating these ceramic houses with our Teen Class.
While making these houses, we learned about slab-built clay projects. We used white low-fire clay from Seattle pottery.
We rolled out slabs 3/8" thick and at least 6" wide. We made templates for our houses out of tar paper - the tar paper helped the walls keep their form while we assembled them.
We learned how to attach with a scratch-attach method.
Scoring is best if the marks go both ways, like "X's" or "crosshatches." Gaps, where two pieces are joined together, need to be filled with a scored and moistened coil if they can't be pushed together and sealed with vinegar.
And then we let them follow their imaginations.
