I recently took a Garden Totem pottery class at our local Art Center. This was my 1st attempt at molding clay.
It was a 5 week class and we created lots of clay pieces that we would eventually stack into a garden totem.
After we molded/created our individual pieces, they were fired in a kiln and then we painted glazes on them and they were fired again.
Here is the finished project.
I added some copper wiring and some copper tubing to better space out my pottery pieces. I really like the way the light catches on the copper.
Everyone’s totem was unique.
It was a really fun project and it adds a bit of whimsy to our garden.
