"Mandala"comes from the Sanskrit word for "circle"
Mandalas appear all over the world, in various forms. The mandala commonly represents unity, the circle of life or the universe. Mandalas use Radial Balance, meaning everything comes from a center point, a circle with a center. Think of spider webs, flowers, snowflakes; these are all examples of radial balance.
Students start with a circle. Divide the circle into equal sections.
The Seventh Grade gnomes are finally in the kiln! I was out of town for a wedding. Then a hail storm knocked the power out at the school for over an hour yesterday. Progress has been delayed. We will be glazing later this week - pictures to follow.
Some of the other classes have also started on their Halloween projects! The end of the quarter is nearing. Projects are being wrapped up, displays being changed and all with pictures to be posted soon.
