Ceramic Birds

     The 3rd graders just completed these great bird sculptures.  To prepare for them, they practiced by drawing birds from photographs 2-dimensionally.  At our next class, each student got a fist-sized ball of clay and answered the prompt to "sculpt a bird and anything that bird might need".  The students also tried to include the textures of the birds' wings and feathers.  We glazed them after they were bisque-fired in the kiln.
