Ceramic Bird Nest

Ceramic bird nestThese ceramic bird nests were inspired by my friend Jenni Ward’s “Create with Clay 3” ebook.

I love how neatly the glaze turned out, thanks to the fact that you can remove the eggs and paint them separately.

My class was a mix of ages, but I found that kinders did just fine with this simple project. If you like to start your projects with a story, this “Whose Nest” book by Guy Troughton is a perfect match.
