We worked with clay again this week and started as with last week with warming up with the clay – we rolled it, we flattened it, we punched it, we hammered it, we squeezed it we pinched it still using just our hands and fingers. Then we passed our clay to the person beside us and had to find what might be a nose in the clay. When we found a nose we added eyes, passed it on and the next person added a mouth. We continued with these heads adding different features and using clay tools to get different textures. Tom was our photographer for today and he photographed these strange clay heads before we rolled them back into a ball. Then we started making our own animals and creatures. These ones we are keeping!
