Olla work begins!

We will start this project by looking at the Mata Ortiz video.
You will be making 2 Ollas. I will be textured, and the other will be burnished.
Make sure to wrap up your pots as you have been shown in class or they will dry out.
You are responsible for making your own texture tool.
Make sure you check out the websites on the board for ideas for possible shapes.
I look forward to seeing what you make!
