Making Clocks out of Stoneware Slabs

5 year old and 7 year old students decorating their clock faces before construction.

Today's ambitious project was making freestanding clay clocks. I created the design template for the overall project and printed standard clock faces from the computer. Before class, I threw the slabs and cut the shapes, as I knew this project would take a lot of time. They did a really nice job on this. Their favorite part, always, is drawing on and embellishing the clay surface.

Are they going to have a working clock mechanism in them? Very cute idea.
