Realistic Head Rattles - Student Work

My last years Ceramics I students outdid themselves with these realistic heads, that when shaken are also rattles. Making them highly expressive and realistic as possible were their goals. And then the finishing off was critical to their success as well. This top one was done by junior Tryphena Liu, and the 3 bottom ones were made by seniors Justin Currlin, Brian Jin and junior Chareena Eleazar.

These last 3 were done by seniors Julie Chong, Bryant Min and Erin Unson. Before the kids started on these I went thru the placement of the facial features to better acquaint them with the human head, both profile as well as frontal. The students were fairly intimidated by the assignment but ended up having a lot of fun with it once they got going.
