Puffer Learns About CeramicsDVD - 2013
This program is an interesting and humorous way to introduce young children to the art of ceramics, its creation, and its uses. Puffer the reporter learns about ceramics when he visits his friend Polly who is having a show at her Clay Club. They visit a studio where she demonstrates how clay becomes ceramic art. Polly continues her demonstrations to introduce other ceramic art processes: slab construction; pinch pots; coil-built pots; wheel-thrown functional pottery, decorative pottery, and nonutilitarian pottery. Animated sequences are combined with artists' examples. Polly also tells Puffer how clay is made in nature and briefly discusses its history. This DVD is accompanied by a teacher's guide with discussion questions and related art activities. A companion book of the same name is also available.
