The Art of Darkness Ceramics Descriptions:

Baba Yaga Houses
Before we begin our project, we will discuss mythology surrounding the Eastern European witch, Baba Yaga. Students will then use slab techniques to build their own version of Baba Yaga’s moveable house. The houses will be decorated with paint and feathers to complete the project.

Deep Sea Angler Fish
Using slab rolled clay, students will get a chance to make their own deep sea angler fish, who live at the bottom of ocean in darkness. Pieces will also be glazed for durability, and glow paint will be added to look like a real anger fish!

Mothman Shelf Sitters
Mere clay will be transformed into the Mothman of Point Pleasant, West Virginia! The students’ creations will include dangling beaded feet, and textured wings.
