Cows - Organic shapes
Students in my 1st through 3rd grade classes created clay cows. This was part of a series of lessons about organic shapes. Organic shapes are the exact opposit of geometric shapes. The have curvy lines and are mostly found in nature. The black and white patterns on dairy cows are examples of organic shapes. The kids created these cows using Rovin's RO-82 terra cotta clay. To glaze them the kids dipped them into our base white majolica glaze. Then they painted black, orange and pinkish lowfire glazes over the top of the white base.
