Pottery in the Playscape

I recently saw an add for Architectural Pottery's garden sculpture (shown below). It reminded me of some pottery sculpture I saw in a school near Portland. So many schools still have kilns and clay and kids can make infinite sculptural pieces. Little pieces often get lost in a large playground. Here are some interesting ways to make ceramics for the playground or learning garden.

Architectural Pottery's garden sculptures
Tile pieces waiting to be included in a large piece
Tile pillar with kids pieces included
Individual pieces of pottery stacked on a piece of re-bar. It makes a nice totem.

Maybe we could let them carve their own art...(this is stone not clay though)

They could make their own educational signage

I like the stacked look of these pieces (Architectural Pottery's garden sculptures)
