It is important to make sure that students understand the vocabulary used in a class. This PowerPoint covers common terms used in a ceramics class including: clay, ceramics, elasticity, wedging, pinching, coiling, scoring, slip, slab, leather-hard, greenware, bone-dry, kiln, firing, bisque, glaze, and stoneware. Presenting basic ceramics terminology as a lecture is a quick way to cover a lot of information in a short amount of time. This is perfect to use on the first day of a ceramics art class at the high school level.
This file includes the Ceramic Terms lecture and the lesson plan to accompany it.
