Holiday Gifts and Messages for Win
Clear Glazing Our Bowls
The final step to our bowls is adding a clear glaze. Not only does this make them that much shinier and more finished in design, it also helps to keep them food safe in preparation for filling them with cookies! When we unloaded the bowls from the kiln, Isabelle commented that the bowls felt warm particularly “the red one” felt “hot” to her. We left them on a table to cool a little more, and then prepared to clear glaze them.
After glazing, the bowls went back in the kiln, and we will fill them with real, baked cookies tomorrow!
Messages For Win
In the studio, other children took time to work on welcoming messages for Win Ackerly. Win has joined us several times at the outdoor classroom and during our outdoor clay experience, and will officially begin in January. In anticipation of her arrival, Brown Room worked hard to create messages to fill her mailbox. Using paper, glue and a variety of materials children created meaningful notes where they shared their symbols, their favorite parts of the Brown room and sweet sentiments. We are so excited to officially welcome Win to school in 2022!
Emma: Pink piece of paper. Don’t forget your glue sticks. Willaby Wallaby Woo! Dear Win. Dear Dear Win. My favorite song. Wallaby Wallaby Woo!
Fay: Uhoh…I found a gray one. I did it! I need the top. I made a doorbell.
Bailee: For Win! Dear Win!
Cal made sure Win knew there was a message from him by covering it with his symbol, the grasshopper.
Seon: For Win. A little flower. Message.
Isabelle: This is for Win. I’m done.
