Middle School Tea Sets

This project took forever!!!
But it was definitely worth it.
After creating the East Asian Prezis, each student used what they had learned to make four teacups and a teapot with whatever design they wanted.  The cups are pinch pots and the pots are coil built.  We talked a lot about different glaze options and they really came up with some creative and beautiful pieces.  I was originally planning sumi-e wash paintings and an elaborate combined display, but the tea sets ended up taking way longer than I had anticipated so we quickly put them in the hall outside my room for the last week before exams and called it good.
