Who says pop doesn't come in glass bottles anymore? They may not be easy to come by, but each 7th grade class rose to the challenge of collecting the metal caps used to make these end tables.
The iron bases were custom made by local company Delia, and complement the bottle caps perfectly. Their 16" x 16" size make them ideal for a refreshing drink! Each table is 24 inches tall with the bottle caps set in resin.
For indoor use only.

Describing both material and non-material realities, the mandala appears in all aspects of life: the celestial circles we call earth, sun, and moon, as well as conceptual circles of friends, family, and community.
"The integrated view of the world represented by the mandala, while long embraced by some Eastern religions, has now begun to emerge in Western religious and secular cultures. Awareness of the mandala may have the potential of changing how we see ourselves, our planet, and perhaps even our own life purpose."
(From Mandala: Journey to the Center, by Bailey Cunningham)
The 5th grade students were taught how to create their own Mandala by Ms. Tellis.
They cut out a circle, broke the circle down into quarters, create their design on 1/4, traced the pattern into the other segments, black lined their design, and filled in with color.
The finished Mandala's will be 'published' in a hand bound book and used to decorate the frame of a magnetic board.
Show is the handmade cover of the fifth grade Mandala Book.

The two fourth grade classes will be making a pair of metal garden trellises. The trellis frames are black clothing fixture grid frames, donated by BC Graphics. The frames are 24"wide and 84" high,with 3" x 3" squares or grids'. There will be legs attached to the bottoms, that will be able to be inserted into the ground to keep them upright.
The students will create 2 1/2" fused class squares using donated/leftover glass. The fused glass squares will be fitted into grids on the fixture frames, with copper wire. The fused glass will be made with the assistance of local artist Jennifer Wells. http://www.jenniferwellsdesign.com/
Students each created their own small piece...and then collaborated in small groups to create larger fused glass pieces.
