Class Project

An elementary school class started a class project to make
planters to take home to their parents.

They wanted to have a plant in it that was easy to take care of,
so they decided to use cactus plants.

The students were given green-ware pottery planters in the shape of
clowns which they painted with glaze.

The clown planters were professionally fired at a class outing
so they could see the process.

It was great fun!

They planted cactus seeds in the finished planters and they grew
nicely, but unfortunately, the children were not allowed to take
them home.

The cactus plants were removed and small ivy replaced them and
the children were then allowed to take them home instead.

The teacher said cactus seemed like a good idea at the time!
