Two mothers and three children. One boy maybe 9 and two little girls, 5. The little girls liked the video (as did the others) and even asked to watch it again! Success = Not a boring video that only clay nuts would appreciate.
All of them were eager to carve and paint their tiles…the boy used paper to design his and the two little girls just jumped right in! All of the finished tiles are so beautiful and meaningful to each participant! One of the little girls asked me quite earnestly if I was Native, I said no, that I was mostly Scottish, she seemed happy with that answer.

the very carefully crafted young boy’s tile, Tawodi, dried and under-glazed
by using the technique of pointillism, making an image out of dots, or in this case pinholes, this tile looks so much like it has been beaded!!
