This class I started my final piece and got the base for it.
I think that I did a good job of making the perfect plate and next time I will make the lane lines.
Here is a picture of the big base I made. (it is inside the bag)

Today I made multiple diving boards for the swimming pool. I think I did a good job on the blocks and they look like Olympic ones.
Here is a picture of one.
I also practiced joining clay. I will join the pool together on the final class so it is ready to go in the kiln without breaking apart. in the next few lessons, I will finish the lane lines, diving blocks, and the sides of the pool.
This is my final swimming pool clay object.
