Flower Power (Grade 11 Clay Sculpture AVI3M)

After doing some research on Google, I was inspired by organic sculpture, especially flower based pieces.  I decided to turn this interest into a project for my students, and they loved it.  The grade 11 students were asked to take a basic organic form and elaborate it, using repeating shapes and textures.  We had some difficulties with explosions in the kiln, so not every project is shown here.  Some of the more simple sculptures in this set were created by some keen grade 10 students.
