AP 3D Art goes on a field trip outside! Using a special kind of clay called Raku, we were able to fire our glazed piece in a homemade kiln, something that we had been looking forward to doing since last year. The whole class agreed that they had a great time and thought that it was a good experience where we learned more about ceramics and each other. We are looking forward to hopefully doing another Raku fire in the spring as well! Check out a video of the experience below:
