Clay Projects in Progress

My 3rd through 5th grades have been excitedly working on their clay projects this month.  Their pieces have been air drying and we’ve just begun the firing process – glazing next week!  Here’s what we’ve been creating:

Fifth Grade Trees Fifth Grade Clay Trees Fifth Grade Clay Trees – we made holes to add real twigs for branches after firing them.  This project is from Craig Hinshaw’s awesome book, “Clay Connections”

Fourth Graders are making wall pockets – they are very excited to work on a clay piece that they can hang on the wall.
