The mugs are drying out and waiting to be fired, so while we are waiting for them the clay kids made Mimbres Bowls. We used white clay for this project and started with a simple, basic pinch pot. The Mimbres bowls were created by an ancient civilization, so I encouraged the kids to allow their bowls to look primitive rather than perfect and polished. The kids then painted the bowls with an under glaze in traditional designs. You can check out the finished bowls on Artsonia here!
