I just did a lesson on Mexican suns. We used a chinet bowl to drape clay
over. They all came out nicely, all different personalities (baseball cap,
hair, eyebrows, raised cheeks, a Medusa with dreadlocks). I also have only 40
minute classes and it is frustrating because it took about 7 classes just to
get them ready to be fired. Then when the stragglers are finished (hopefully
next week) we will glaze them. As far as space, some can be stacked if the
rays don't extend out too far.
