Fabulous Fish

[catablog_gallery id=”184″]

My second graders do an “intro to slab construction” clay project.  For the last ten thousand years or so it’s been a spoon holder in the shape of a gingerbread person.  I got a little tired of those, so this is the first year of “Fish Dishes” instead!  I think they’re pretty great, too.

We rolled slabs, cut a free-form fish (no templates… yes, Mrs. A works without a net.)  added texture and details like gill cover, lateral line and rays.  Then we turned them over on bowls for a slightly concave shape and added little feet to the bottoms for a little elevation.  I’m pretty impressed – I think they’re “keepers”!
