Ridley College Design & Technology Class Makes Sushi Platters

The Grade 11 Design and Technology class has been spending the past few weeks working through the design process of making a sushi platter.  In coming up with a design students had to make sure their platter embodied the Japanese culture.  Students had to first draft their designs on a plan and then mould the clay using their plan.

The clay platters were then fired in a kiln which turns the clay into ceramic.  The final part of the design process was to glaze the ceramic and then to reheat it to create the vibrant colours that you see on the platters.

Today the students took pictures of their final products.
