This is a flower pot made from slabs. And you know, you can just take, get a potted plant and it just fits right in and it makes a really great gift. And this is a piggy bank which is thrown on the wheel and a little bit of a cork nose. So, really this is the, what you would throw on the wheel and you would add all the parts later. This is a basket, where you actually extrude or roll pieces of clay. So, you're going to make coils and then, weave them together to make this basket. And a candle holder, or a votive, where you put a little candle in the back, and all these little holes, kind of shines the light through. This one's kind of made for Halloween, but you can do them any holiday, really, or any kind of house. And are pinch pots, just some, little bowls that you can make. So, as you can see, there are plenty of ideas of things you can make with clay. Just grab some clay and start to play with it and you'll come up with your own too. I'm Beth from the Village Art Project, and thanks for watching.
