Today's challenge is a little different - can you make a musical instrument which makes a sound? Drum, pan pines, maracas, ocarina, maybe even a whistle ...
If you are interested, I made a "how-to-make a pottery whistle" video for my make-at-home pottery club over lockdown
Challange 4 - hand build flowers of your choosing... daisies, daffodils, roses...
Bring on Spring!!!
Can you make a punnet of fruit... all hollow inside, and delicious on the outside?
Challenge: To make your own Illuminated Tiny House
Using a small lump of clay - can you build a small dwelling to go over an LED candle ?
Consider your theme - fantasy, realistic, gingerbread, ancient, new...?
How will you make it ? Roll out slabs? Based on a pinch pot? What will you use to cut out the windows? And think about texture, colour and decorations.
How are you going to Illuminate it? Caution- tea lights generate much heat so pls design your creation accordingly or use LED’s
Please share your results, tips, and questions on the Facebook Group (link above)
Challenge: To handbuild an ornate Chalice
It needs to have a distinct foot, stem & bowl and the rim must be good to the touch.
Consider - ancient, modern, religious, regal, broken, poisoned chalice, Holy grail, Rastafarian ... Is yours for wine, water, candles, jewellery... Will yours have a symbolic meaning - special to you?
And does it need to be fired - or will AirDry look fabulous?
Have a happy week potting
