Hello and welcome everyone, thank you for taking an interest in the Ceramics Club. Did you know you can find ceramics all around us?  This category includes things like such as bricks, tiles, plates, and bowls.  These are usually made from earth and water and shaped into a desired form.   Once shaped, they are fired in a high temperature oven known as a kiln.

Once humans discover that you could dig up clay from the earth and mix with water to form shapes one of our first major industries had begun. Archeologists have found many human made ceramic objects that date back to around 24,000 BC.  Around 9,000 BC some of the first potters created and used vessels to hold food and water.

The Ceramics Club offers an opportunity for students to meet after school to work on projects and expand their creative spirit. We will be forming containers such as pinch pots and coil bowls.  We will also make slab boxes and figurines as well.  I look forward to seeing anyone who is interested in joining the club this year.
