Native American Coil Pots with Slip Inlay or Sgraffito

These high school students in my Ceramics 1 class at Reeths-Puffer high school learned to make a seamless coil pot while studying the artist Maria Martinez and Navaho Indian symbols.  The students studied the technique and the culture then created their own pots that used symbols that either represented them biographically or told an episodic story of their life.  The results are beautiful.
