"The Dinner Party" via Judy Chicago

For those of you who are not familiar with The Dinner Party, it's an incredibly thoughtful and amazing piece by Judy Chicago. I used her piece as an influence for my 8th graders in a ceramic project. And although they were unable to make theirs as professional as Miss Chicago, I felt they learned a lot about the process of a large scale project such as this.

So the idea was that they made a dinner set (although all you will see are the plates) dedicated for a specific person, whether they be family, friend, foe or fictional.

I think we all know who this little guy is.

I love the technical and classic hearts mixed in this one.

We seem to have a Sesame Street thing going on here...

I LOVE this one (made by one of my special ed kiddos for his mom who loves frogs).

This was made for the Grim Reaper. It's hard to see, but it's a gold painted skull with brain included as well as a silver goblet to boot! (Also made by another one of my special ed kiddos)

May we all continue to "make" things, whether for ourselves or other people :)
