Visit from Peter the potter

As part of our art inquiry last term, Peter Scott, a potter from Auckland Studio Potters came to share some of his pottery with Room 17 children.  The Editors reading group wrote some questions to ask him about the process of making a pot.
Peter explained the difference between ceramic art and pottery.  Bella has done her own research about pottery and this is shared on a separate post.  The children were particularly interested in the crackles - the little lines on the glaze.  A favourite pot was the terracotta one with the tiny neck.
We are really grateful to Peter for sharing his wonderful pots with us.
You might want to go on holiday courses to learn how to make your own pots at the Auckland Studio Potters place in Onehunga
