Look around you! You can probably see at least one thing that began as raw clay--the bricks that make up your home, the plates and mugs that you eat and drink from, your light sockets - all of these started out as raw clay. Even the outer shell of the space shuttles was made of clay. Clay has been used for thousands of years to build homes as well as to create useful and beautiful things. From a pinch pot to coil, slab, and adobe, we will explore clay as early humans must have done and then we’ll have some fun with more modern techniques.
