The final kiln load, graded and returned to 4th and 5th grade students. As I mentioned before, 4th graders created animals of choice by breaking everything down into shapes to form their creatures. Fifth grades students take it a step further and turn their animals into clay whistles. I was especially pleased by the creativity of both groups this year. Some pieces are realistic, some whimsical and all personally creative. I had a few favorites that it was hard to see walk out of the classroom and teasingly told students that I had to keep them! Thankfully, all were photographed so I can retain the images to share with students of future classes. Now, I share them with all of you.
