Clay Bricks

This young artist was particularly intrigued to arrive one week and find that the clay was cut into rectangular prism shapes. They reminded her of bricks.

Here she uses a stick to smooth "mortar" on a brick.
Using one piece of clay to scrape off "mortar" to spread on a brick.
Here are a variety of objects built from the bricks. A bed in the lower right corner. This was a theme this young artist returned to in her clay work for several weeks, even requesting help making the clay square when she came in to find it in balls.
