We used a tray to form clay around it. Then we painted it black/ wax and then started carving our design. I think the Tigers texture is very successful, but there are a lot of scratches that take away from the design 


We used the balloons as a form, we put plaster over the balloon and then painted it. I used fishing line to attach a nail person.  I think this is a very cool project.

Wire tree

We started by taking wire about 20 inches long to achieve a tree about 8 inches tall. After we cut them we made roots by making a loop and twisting loops at the bottom. We twisted all of the 20 wires together and then started making the branches. If I could do this differently I would make it shorter and have a smaller rock.

These bowls were really fun to work on! Each bowl was a completly different process. 

The blue and red bowl was made on a wheel where you wedge the clay, center it, and then start building up.

The green and yellowish bowl was a pinch pot. I didn't like the pinch pot because it was very hard to make it even and neat.

The last bowl was paper maché with fabric, I used a dark red on the outside and a blue on the inside.

My favorite bowl was the kick wheel, the whole process was new to me and over all was just fun to make!
