Ceramics Students Fire Clay Hearts for Meals on Wheels Project
Posted 01/30/2019 09:00AM

 

 

As part of ESD's Day of Service on MLK Day earlier this month, ceramics students created these clay hearts to deliver to Meals on Wheels for Valentine's Day. Pictured above: Elle Etcheverry '21 and Adeline Beichler '21 making markings to hang the ceramic hearts after firing. 

Creating these hearts required several in-depth steps, such as compressing sharp edges, drilling holes for later hanging, and several firing processes. After bisque-firing, the kiln will cool and allow students to unload the hearts. They will then airbrush teh color underglazes and hand-brush the clear glaze. The kiln will then be reloaded for the glaze firing. A day after glaze firing, the hearts will be unloaded and students will grind off any markings. 

Keep up the great work, Eagles!
