Art Students Make Ceramic Lanterns
Two high school ceramic classes just finished creating lanterns out of clay. First they made "texture blocks", which were fired in the kiln. Then they rolled out clay slabs on the texture blocks, creating relief panels which were used to build their intricate lanterns. After they were bisque fired, the lanterns were glazed and fired a second time. They lit them with LED lights.
