Ceramic Flowers

Leave a comment

First graders had a blast sculpting these ceramic flowers! We began with a chunk of clay that was rolled into a sphere. Students used their shoe to press it flat and create texture. This experience was quite the hit with the kiddos!

Next, students pinched and molded extra clay pieces to create petals and a center for their flower. They used tools to add more texture and designs.

The flowers went into the kiln to be bisqued and when they came out, it was time to paint. Students could choose shimmer colors or neon colors to paint their flowers.

Great job, first graders!
