|The kids glazed these flat "cracker" beads today...|
My class is making three large sculpture poles composed of assorted beads. This afternoon, I brought everything home, and started to clean and prep for firing a kiln load tonight. This morning, several fifth graders came into my classroom, before school, and started complaining that they didn't get to do a project like this last year. One student said, "Yeah, you didn't do anything with us." I almost choked on my tea. We worked on so many ceramic projects last year, that it felt like my kiln hardly had a chance to cool down. Anyway, all fifth grader bitterness aside, I hope we make our deadline to enter "Sculpture Is", which is a show hosted by Sierra Azul Nursery and the Pajaro Valley Arts Council. The deadline is looming large! Can't wait to have my kitchen back for actual dining.
