Subject: A Classic Teacher's Story

A class of elementary students started a class project to make a planter
to take home and wanted to have a plant in it that was easy to take care
of, so was decided to use cactus plants. The students were given
greenware pottery of a clown planter and they painted them with glaze
and had them professionally fired at a class outing so they could see
the process. It was great fun. They planted the cactus seeds in the
finished planters and they grew nicely but unfortunately were not
allowed to take them home. (click on picture)

The cactus plants were removed and a small ivy used to replace them and
the children were then allowed to take them home. The teacher said
cactus seemed like a good idea at the time... (thanks to L for the story)

(It's pretty funny, but i'm suspicious, don't those clowns look very neatly painted?
