February’s theme was hearts and clay at PFA Studio. The Wednesday Elementary Art class made slab built ceramic heart boxes.
First we learned about clay and using the slab roller. We used my Shimpo Slab Roller that I absolutely love!
Then everyone rolled out their own slabs.
Cut the top and bottoms of the ceramics boxes with heart-shaped cookie cutters.
Attached it all together – not as easy as it may seem.
After they were fired, the students painted them with three coats of ceramic paint.
Then they were fired again.
You can see the results! I just love them.
And one photo of my super cute Pottery Barn. Yes, I literally have a Pottery Barn!
