Clay Days

Georgetown artists can hardly wait to take their clay projects home!  They began their projects in December, oh so long ago….and have been patiently waiting (well, sort of patiently) for their projects to dry, be bisque fired, glazed, and fired again.  And of course we have to display them for just a bit so friends and teachers can admire their creations.  Soon my friends…we will wrap these treasures up and send them home.

Hot Wall Pockets

Finally had time to load the kiln this week – my fourth graders are dying to see their wall pockets that they began before Christmas break.  Here they are still in the kiln – too hot to handle!

We’ll add a wire to hang them, and maybe some beads too.  Hope to send them home for Valentine’s Day!
