Some Finished Clay!

Bowls, cupcakes, animals and Mustache?!
I have finally begun the glaze firing process in the clay unit.   The clay building seems to have taken an eternity this year.  Its been a long winter.  So here are a few of the first pieces to be totally completed.  They are all from the after school program.  I had to push them through first since the Art Show is on Thursday.  I'll try to post some pictures of the show next week.  Opening the kiln after a glaze firing is the highlight of my job.   I feel like a kid on Christmas morning.  It is so exciting to see the completed shiny pieces and I am always thrilled by what my students have created.  There will be more sharing as the weeks continue.  Over 600 pieces to be fired so stay tuned!
