And as every week, local artist Tina Preece worked with us as we made our birds.
Intro to Clay : The Art of the Pinch Pot : Birds in Nests
Clay (we used low fire white)
1. We looked at various artists' interpretations of birds made from a variety of media and discussed things like the type of bird, materials used, decorative techniques and use of color.
|Bird sculptures by various artists|
2. Students spent a few minutes drawing birds in their sketchbooks to consider ideas for their sculptures.
5. Lastly, eggs and worms were added to the insides of the nests. Clay was set aside to dry and will later be fired, glazed, and fired a second time.
