Clay Castles and Heart Vases

My Fun With Clay Group spent a couple sessions working on these beauties.  They are waiting to come out of the glaze kiln (fingers crossed all's well!) but I couldn't wait to share a couple pictures of their work so far! 
Once I showed them how to shape a cylinder using a cardboard tube, the kids really took off with their own ideas! Each one is so unique-wish more of the pictures I took had come out-but I will try to share the final results when they come out of the glaze kiln.

They also worked on sort of Jim Dine-inspired heart vases around Valentine's Day, and they went to town experimenting with stamps, texture, and color!
