I am so disappointed!
We made these wonderful clay daffodils with another class for spring. They were supposed to go into our school display case for April and then we were going to wrap them with a tea light candle inside for a Mother's Day gift.
However, something is terribly wrong with our school's kiln. During the first firing the kiln made so much noise that the Grade 7 class, where the kiln is located, had to relocate to another room!!!
So now we have to wait for our next in-school professional day to do the second firing, so as not to disturb the class again. Luckily it is at the end of this month. So, although they won't get the chance to be displayed, they'll at least be ready to go for Mother's Day.
Here is a bird's eye view:
Can you figure out what we used to help shape them? We used a snowflake cookie cutter for the bottom and a small pinch pot for the top.
They are glazed and ready to go. Stay tuned for the finished product!
