Clay coil candle lanterns were glazed by our third and fourth grade potters and fired in our kiln. Each piece has it's own unique characteristics and personality.

The painting above, made in '08-'09, depicts the old Williston train station. This is one of two images that depict historic buildings of our town. The children learned how to project an image, copy it onto canvas and observe angles, color values and tones and other details from the original black and white photos. They also imagined the colors of the building, sidewalks, train, clothing and surrounding landscape. The paintings hung for a while at Dorothy Alling Library and now are at Allen Brook School.

Third and fourth graders are currently working in clay. They are constructing their lanterns, using the coil technique and the slip and score method of attachment. Their pieces will be bisque fired, glazed and then fired again. To see work in progress click here.
