It's almost Christmas. A time to spread joy and cheer. Everyone has their own traditions for Christmas. For me, I open my presents on Christmas Eve and spend time with my dad's side of the family. On Christmas day, I spend time with my mom's side of the family.
Usually my mom and dad get me and my brother a lot of presents. When it comes to my parents, they get presents from all of us, and from us separately. I had to make a clay mug that is suppose to look like an object for one of my projects. I couldn't decide once again on what to do. I was thinking about something ballet slipper themed and moon themed. After looking at some pictures, I showed my dad and he helped me decided to make a snowman. Since my mom loves snowmen, I thought it would a perfect present for her.
To make my pot, I took some clay and made two pinch pots. To make a pinch pot, I just rolled the clay into a ball and started to pinch the center and rotate it until I got a pot. After I got two pinch pots made, I put one of them on top of each other, making a round circle. Then I took some string to cut the top of the mug. After that I smoothed it out and made the handle, nose, and hat. When I was done making the mug how I wanted it to, my teacher placed it in the kiln so it can harden up. When that was done, I glazed it and my teacher put it back into to kiln.
Overall I think the mug looks really cute. I just love how it has a cute winter and Christmas vibe. I really hope that my mom likes it. This will be my last post until January. I hope everyone reading this has a Wonderful Holiday and a Happy New Year. Hope 2016 will be full of joy and cheer!
