In my intro to ceramics class, we’ve been making and glazing all sorts of little things and now we’re onto this! We had to make a design and cut out two piece from two flat layers of clay. For the armadillo, it was his bean-shaped body. We had to seam the clay together and make it hollow inside, to give it shape. The rest of the armadillo is just made out of clumps of clay!
He’s being fired in the kiln now, and if he survives he’ll get glazed.
