Nature Themed Planters - Student Art


First off I really have to apologize for not posting like i should everyday. I've just been so distracted this summer and only getting to the computer a couple times a week. But I still have a lot of photos to post from the end of the 2009 school year. So please be patient with me :) I use these clay planters as final assignments every year for my Ceramics I class. They build and glaze them and then we plant them on the day of the 4th quarter final. I purchase at least two plants and soil for each student planter and then give them a brief lesson on how not to kill their plants. This year they were able to choose from marigolds, sweet williams, impatiens, lobeila, and petunias. These first two planters were made by juniors Ekta Doshi and Lihan Woo.

These next three were created by senior Jessica Song, junior Wayne Chen and senior Cynthia Tsai (who I'm missing like crazy, love you woman!)

And these last three were done by senior Estelle Hong, and juniors Steven Ebalobor and Crystal Valino. Great looking planters, hope all the plants are thriving. Keep them watered you guys! the weather is heating up!!

    I really like stephen's and crystal's nature planters. I like how they applied things that you find in nature in their designs like the tree and the butterflies. I feel like they give it more of a natural feel to the piece.
