EE4 students learned how to make simple pinch pots with terra-cotta clay. Then, by turning the pot on its side, it became the gaping open mouth of a monster. Students then used clay tools to cut and mold clay into monster features. By adding eyes, teeth, tongues, and other details, the effect was complete.
Unfortunately, the school kiln broke down before we could glaze the owls, so they've had to remain in the bisque fired stage, but the students loved them nonetheless!
