Hand Vase

The hand has been used in art by the Aborigines in Australia and has been viewed by people hoping to tell the future. This grabbing lesson is going to use your hand to construct a vase. This sculptural vase will provide fond memories of a child’s hand and at the same time hold pencils, pens, and if big enough, a plant. They can also be great gifts for dad and mom. This project is simple, but requires patience. The artistic designs are endless and the vase can be made small or large depending on the student. Your Hand Vase will encourage learning through the exploration of color, design, planning, and artistic expression. This is truly an opportunity to create something as unique as a fingerprint. Time to grab some clay and get your hands messy.
