This ceramics art lesson focuses on the relationship between functional pottery and food traditions
. Students are asked to use slab building and slumping techniques to create a functional sculpture that goes with a personal food tradition. It can be as simple as a daily cup of coffee or as complex as a serving platter for Thanksgiving turkey.
