In the studio: getting to know clay

This year's group of children is particularly interested in clay.
Yesterday, we explored the clay more even more fully than we have so far.








How well do you know clay?

Oh my God!! I'm panicking right now with all that clay. I wish I could let it go that far to explore and experience. That must have been awesome to watch. Those kids are lucky to have an amazing teacher.

Well - we've done it with paint, but not clay! :)
Never thought to, actually.

Love the freedom and intimacy.

Lucky children. Our family got to know clay well when we helped out building a cob oven locally. Fantastic way of learning about it and it remains outside (mostly).

I want to know clay!
Think I'll get to know it in the garage though.
