Coil Clay Turtles

Remember this post about me loving coils??
Well the turtles are now glazed and finished!
Four turtles died in the kiln during the first firing.
Not sure if one exploded and the surrounding turtles took one for the team...either way it was a sad day.
I've never lost anything to the kiln before. 
The fourth graders whom they belonged to were equally sad.

But...a new day came...and new turtles were made to replace the old.
Still loving the coils!

Hope you enjoy them as much as I do...
