  • Students learned the principles of using micaceous clay derived from sources in Northern NM and received a small premade micaceous greenware bowl to practice pottery finishing techniques, including water scraping, sanding, slip application (with micaceous slip), and burnishing with a polishing stone. The students were provided with clay, a puki base mold, micaceous slip, basic tools, towels, sandpaper, and other pottery equipment.

  • Steve provide a lunch of green chile stew (pork, potatoes, and onions) made in a micaceous pot served with tortillas on Saturday.
