Capitol Christmas Tree Ornaments

This year the 2012 Capitol Christmas Tree will be chosen from Meeker, Colorado! We have been asked to send in hand made Christmas Ornaments to decorate this tree. What an honor!

We will be using our first clay project to create the ornaments. The ornaments (greenware) should be completed by Friday, although we will be starting our next lesson on Thursday.

We will be using score and slip and texture to create the ornaments. Make sure your inner wall is no more than 1" thick in any area and that you poke a hole in the bottom to release air and a form a semi-circle to attach the hook.

The theme for the ornaments is "Celebrating Our Great Outdoors." Ornaments should be between 3 and 7 inches in height and no more than 1/2 pound in weight.
