This is the first planter made with a group of students. The tile makers were Mrs. Chhun’s first graders at Lake Harriet Community School in Minneapolis. They were each given a plain 4×4 inch pressed clay tile and a brief introduction to a few techniques of modeling and carving. It was up to each child to come up with an idea and explore the medium in their own way. I then rolled out a circular bottom slab and “stitched” the tiles together in rings working up from the bottom. The lip was made by lining the top edge with a long strip of clay.
