Day 107

I brought my camera to school today to take pictures of the student artwork from the art show. Here's Ashley's piece:

It's such a great piece. I'm so proud of all the work she put into it. 
I really like the way she created two separate lids and the details in the underglaze.  

I'm teaching a Mixed Media class this trimester and for our first project we poured plaster into milk containers and then carved abstract human forms. We researched Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth. We learned how to use carving tools like rasps and sanding paper and we talked about proportions of the human form. The results were amazing. I'm so proud of my students.
