I thought about this and it was just too good of a chance to pass up.
I would not only be working with someone in High School, but she is the daughter of my best and longest friends in Seagrove.
This week Allison and I meet to talk about her project.
We decided she would take two of her designs and interpret them into clay tiles.
The first one she did was cut to 7.7 inches.
Then Allison set to work to draw out her designs to fit her tiles.
First on paper and then on plastic.
Today she used her plastic templates to transfer her design to the clay.
I gave her some carving tools and about a ten second explanation of how to use them and she was off!
I was amazed at her confidence with the clay and the tools.
After carving today- we have them wrapped up tight to dry slowly.
She will be back next week and I will keep you posted on how they come out.
