Birches students have just finished a wonderful Art Fridays at deCordova unit with Bruce Barry, resident potter at the museum. They learned many techniques for making and decorating clay plates, bowls, mugs, and wind chimes. The final project was extraordinary: Bruce showed the students how to start with a clay sphere and to tease out the clay to create gargoyles. All the children let their imaginations soar, constructing unique and powerful figures. Thanks to Bruce for his exciting guest residency!
