Clay Masks - Student Work

These masks were made by my Beginning 3-d kids, and for many it was their first time to work in clay. They draped their slabs over a newspaper mold and I asked them to design their pieces with a lot of surface embellishment both before and after firing. These two were my favorites. The top one was made by senior Kevin Ni, and the lower one by senior Anne Guu.

I loved how both kids used raffia as accents, and Anne even added some seed beads. I also asked the students to try to bring in some kind of expressive quality, and I feel both kids did just that! Terrific job you two.
