Art Class

Some things we have had to make in my Art class.

A teapot made out of paper. No adhesives, staples, glue etc at all!!!

On this day I forgot to bring in something to recycle and turn into a teapot!! Oh my forgetful brain!! So I looked in my backpack and had the option of a bruised apple, a water bottle or my scrunched up library bag!! Guess what I went with! One girl used a bra which I thought was a great idea but realising I was wearing a really ugly one that day - thought the library bag was a better option!

This is my clay piece!! We had to make a vessel of some kind. I was all prepared to make a 'chip and dip' dish!! The amount of clay we were given allows this bowl to hold 3 corn chips!!! That is all - or maybe 9 olives!!!

This is a page from a book we had to make. Again out of recycled materials. Mine had a strong environmental issue to it. The black and white paper is actually wallpaper from a book of wallpaper samples from the 50's or 60's. They were beautiful and it was such a shame that they had been cut and hacked up!!

At first I thought the third photo was the other girl's bra, but realised my mistake when I counted three indents ...lol.

I'd have to go with the 3 corn chips because I certainly couldn't/wouldn't eat nine olives.

Great work though.

Oh I bet the girl who used her bra was very young and has not had children..... gravity will get her one day!

Tracey - that is so funny! Because she is older than me with 4 kids!! She is as skinny as a rake - the bra was padded too - black and sexy!!! I really wasn't bringing out my beige and faded number!!!

Beautiful work. (I'd take the nine olives though!)
