My Middle school class (7-8th graders) just finished up their Ceramic Boxes with Lids project & they came out so good! I’m proud of their hard work & good craftsmanship! They had to incorporate a theme & use additive methods to design & sculpt their boxes.
Here are some great videos or blogs on Slab Constructed Boxes:
Here’s how we did it:
Cut 6 slabs all the same size (we will trim later)
Score & slip to attach pieces together!
mark the extra clay to be cut off
use a ruler & needle tool to cut extra off
after trimming, the side now fits, do this with all remaing sides
add coil at all joints to reinforce
smooth coils with modeling tools
Work in progress:
Finished Slab Boxes:
