Slab Pottery

George Sacco creates giant decorative bowls using a slab pottery technique. Slabs of clay are placed on a form with breakfast cereal and the unfinished seams between slabs creating textures. Each piece is individually fired in a low temperature outdoor brick enclosure creating different color patterns. The school project shows students creating slab bowls and adding glazes.
