Turtles and other sea creatures

These are some of my favorites - plus a few of my 21 turtles. And yes, I used a cookie cutter for the baby turtles, and then used a shoe or the back of a tile to imprint a design on the shell area. Then glaze plus some crystals for mottled colors on the shells. (Students who had completed all of their work were given a few turtles to glaze, following those directions.)
