An Olla is an unglazed clay pot fired at a low temperature. This allows the pot to remain porous. The Olla is buried in the ground with neck exposed and periodically filled with water. The water seeps into the soil at a rate that provides adjacent plants with a constant water source at the roots.
We will make our own Ollas for your garden. No previous art experience is necessary. Students will gain hands-on experience with clay building techniques such as pinch pot, coiling, and slabs.
