Clay Leaf Dishes-- Kindergarten
Near the end of the school year we had the lovely opportunity to have the grandfather of one of our students come into the classroom to teach us more about clay. He is a ceramicist in the area.
He showed the kindergartners how to form a clay slab over a styrofoam dome form. Leaves were pressed into the dish before forming the dish. Aren't these beautiful?
Three little balls were rolled and pressed on the bottom for feet.
The dishes were glazed with one layer of glaze to provide transparent color for the dishes.
