Fifth Grade Coil Pottery

Fifth Grades at both BMS and Wood End are learning about famous Mexican potter Juan Quezada.  Quezada comes from Mata Ortiz, Mexico and reintroduced the ancient pottery style of the Casas Grandes people.  they were a group of Natives that lived over 600 years ago in a village which is now modern day Mata Ortiz.  Check this video out for more info:

Fifth graders began making thier own coil pots inthe style of Juan Quezada.  We are currently working on this project.  Here are some photos:
