1st Grade Pinch Pots are Done!

1st grade finished their pinch pots! Nearly all of them turned out very well. The 1st graders didn't understand why they had to put three layers of glaze on (or why it didn't dry the right color!) at first, but the ones who followed instructions ended up with very nice, bright shiny colors. They are very proud of their work, and can't wait to take them home!


  1. Jessica,

    Have you heard of Teacher's Choice and Teacher's Palette glazes? They are actually the same color in the jar as the color to which they fire, making them great for young kids. Plus, they're mixable, so you can create a variety of different colors.

    Thanks for sharing your project!

    1. I actually have heard of those, but I have never tried them. I might have to give them a try sometime! It would be interesting to be able to mix glazes.
