Create a very special and fun ceramic piece. Each member of your family will be created individually, using a slab of clay. Once completed, they are all stood up with their hands joined in a circle to represent family unity. Makes a great centerpiece or candle holder. It will certainly be a conversation piece!
Clay Platter horizantal

AUGUST 8TH & 15TH
CRAZY FUN ABSTRACT PLATTER


This will be a wild and fun project! First, we will be hand-building a platter with free form edges using a slump mold. The crazy fun part is glazing day. Instead of using our hands to hold the brush, we will be using our toes! Yes, you heard it right! While sitting in a chair,the paint brush will be placed between your toes and your legs will help guide it. It will be a fun and crazy way to paint an abstract design on the platters using glazes..
