As I've said before, I do not tend to glaze. Each class had a class color (black, green, red, brown, & grey were the different classes), as well as a choice between copper, gold, and silver. We discussed bold geometric patterns for the design. The kids were thrilled, and I'm happy with the results. I like to change it up a bit each year, and I'm already dreaming of what to do to the coil pots next year!
