Houston f08
o Please show your drawing and glaze planning in your sketchbook.
o Please print out this rubric/assessment and turn in with your work.

In this project you learned the ins and outs of creating a footed pot.

Goal: Create a cider-worthy, footed pinch pot.
Your pot must:
• Have evenly pinched walls that are no more than 3/8 inch thick and comfortable to use for drinking.
• Demonstrate careful attention to craftsmanship, with no evident cracks or crumbs
• Have your name or stamp on the bottom
• Be thoughtfully and carefully glazed
• Be drawn in your sketchbook, with glazes noted

Pinching Techniques (Technical Assessment)
Execution / Production
Exceeds the Standard
• Pinch pot walls and floor are an even thickness.
• Pinch pot walls and floor are no thicker than 3/8 inch.
• Your name, initials, or stamp imprint is very neatly put on the bottom, identifying your piece.
• Care, control, and quality craftsmanship is highly evident.
• Your pot has been very carefully drawn in your sketchbook, which is accompanying this sheet.

Meets the Standard
• Pinch pot walls and floor are close to an even thickness.
• Pinch pot walls and floor are no thicker than ½ inch.
• Your name, initials, or stamp is on the bottom, identifying your piece.
• Care, control, and quality craftsmanship has clearly been attempted.
• Your pot has been drawn in your sketchbook, which is accompanying this sheet.

Partially Meets the Standard
• Pinch pot walls and floor are not an even thickness.
• Pinch pot walls and floor are thicker than ½ inch.
• Your name, initials, or stamp is missing.
• Care, control, and quality craftsmanship is not clearly demonstrated.
• Your pot has not been drawn in your sketchbook.
Does Not Meet the Standard
• Pinching the pots is done haphazardly and/or is incomplete.
• Work shows little or no attention to detail.

Glazing Goals:
• Demonstrate the care and control needed while glazing.
• Demonstrate planning of glazing.
• Demonstrate record-keeping of glazes and glazing notes(for future reference).

Glazing Techniques (Technical Assessment)
Execution / Production
Exceeds the Standard
• Your pinch pot is extremely well glazed; care, control, and quality craftsmanship is very clear.
• Glaze has been applied deliberately and according to plan.
• The number and name of each glaze used is accurately and neatly written in your sketchbook (on the “melon” sheet, which should be glued into your book, or directly into your book, next to your drawn pots).
