Dale Chihuly Bowls In the Making!

Usually each year I introduce glass blowing and the work of Dale Chihuly to my 5th grade students and we do a clay lesson based off his seaform bowls and works of art. I have not done the lesson in about 2 years and I thought it was time to bring it out again this year. 5th grade created organic shaped bowls using various tools, created a line pattern on the bottom and then draped them over yogurt bowls to air dry in a form that they shaped. Students will be doing a small color theory lesson to go along with choosing the colors to glaze their final piece. More images when they are done to come!
