Grade 5 students used slab construction and modelling techniques to create a small triangular box, which they were then asked to decorate and glaze to resemble a slice of cake. This was such a fun project, with impressive results. Displaying these sculptures on my vintage cake plates made them look good enough to eat!
A few years ago I did a similar project, making clay cupcakes with grade 4 and 5. You can see those HERE. Either project is a great tie-in with Pop Art and particularly artists such as Wayne Thiebaud.
