The Language of Clay
After listening to the friends describe their work, we offered another invitation to work with the clay and make more things for our shop. Today we decided to pay more attention and focus on shaping our clay to make specific objects. We talked about how all the tiny pieces might be hard to gaze and fire in the kiln because each piece needs to be placed on a stand in the kiln. So we worked on making larger pieces that could each stand on their own.
So many parents commented during our conferences on how the children always talk about snack time. What they ate, who they sat next to etc. Since the creation of our snack plates, I (Allison) personally have been thinking how sophisticated our snack time has become. We have our two snack helpers that arrange the chairs around the table, they place the plates on the table, the water glasses, and the food.
We thought we'd share just how beautiful our snack time is!
