|This project allows for a lot of creativity as the student thinks of objects to place in their clay house!|
|Each student is given a small block of clay. The back needs to be hollowed out with a trimming tool before hand creating a spooky cave and allowing the clay to dry evenly. This project will need to dry slowly for at least two weeks.|
|Spider legs, pumpkins, bats and ghosts are made in miniature to be attached to the house with clay slip.|
|The cave in the back has glued in creepy critters.|
Of course, clay slip is the glue.
|Windows are carved out with a trimming tool |
and pumpkins glued in.
|A chimney on top and climbing skeleton hangs on the side.|
|A door creaks open to reveal a bat or ghost!|
|This clay door is wide open to unleash the terrors within!|
|Village of the abandoned and adorned.|
Glaze with cone 04 glaze then glaze fire.
|Over the many years of doing this project the glaze used that year really makes the piece.|
This is my original idea that I have never seen anywhere else. Please link to me if your class uses my idea.
