Pockets from Pottery Camp

Each kid at camp made a wall pocket using the slab roller, templates and tons of stamps for decoration.

Traditionally wall pockets are used for mail, keys, pens and pencils, maybe even a plant. However, I mentioned I use my pottery pockets at home as charging stations.  I can’t stand all the wires! It keeps all the devices off my counters.

The kids thought that was an awesome idea.  Every household has a device or two.  They were so clever, they actually put small holes at the bottom so the wires could go into the pockets and hide even more mess.camp9camp10_2017-09-05 12.45.38

Sometimes I forget who’s the teacher and who’s the student!

Remember when I figured out I could use craft foam to create my own pottery stamps?

Each camper made one too. I just love how the glaze breaks on their pieces.

They also had the opportunity to throw some bowls and mugs using the pottery wheel.

I just adore watching what kids come up with :)
