F2 Chinese Wish Box

In China the concept of Feng Shui tells us that the arrangement of objects in a space and in relation to each other can focus the unseen energy in the universe, know as Qui (Chi).  The students in the 6th grade class have tried to carefully craft a small box in order to strengthen the magic of a wish kept inside.  They built the boxes of clay (imbuing them with the wish itself in the firing process) and added an animal as the handle. They then glazed the pieces before re-firing.
