Unfired project: 120 points

Your clay project is going to be very open-ended. There are an infinite number of
objects you can create, either functional or non-functional, that will satisfy the
requirements. You may choose to make several small objects or one large one. The
project must not be so large that it can’t fit in your locker. If you are not sure if your
project(s) will meet the criteria listed below, please check with me first. A list of ideas is
on the back if you need help determining what to create.
