Each year the 5th Grade comes for a Filed Trip to take a long nature walk, and learn some plant names, see the view from the cliff and collect bits of nature to make a clay tile souvenir from the day.
They use the bits of nature like stamps, impressing the soft clay slab with a nature design.
I copy each students name on to the back of his tile. After the first firing I glaze the pieces and they are fired again. Each student creates a work of art to keep and remember the day on the land.
