Part of our Summer Art Plan was to make clay instruments. We have made shakers and now...clay whistles. It took some experimenting, but we got the technique down and they work. Yes, big smiles all around when we heard the whistle! Now we need to get all of these instruments fired. Soon I will post pictures of the fired instrument in all of their glory!
I grew up experimenting in art and creativity. I held the belief, and still do, that "I can make that." Not in a smug way, but in a way to challenge myself. Creativity helps keep me connected to the world around me. I am lucky to have a supportive family which includes my husband and three growing children (one attending college).
