I made a picture of a light house on some rocks. Also in the picture there was a ship that is going into the same direction of the lighthouse

With my pinch pot I made a turtle wearing a top hat. For my feet I made circles and slightly flattened them out to resemble turtle feet. I created my lip by flattening out the clay. What I like most about my turtle is the feet because they resemble turtle feet. The top hat could be improved because it is lopsided.

With my pinch pot I made a turtle. For my feet I made four circles and flattened them and stuck them to the bottom of the pot. For my lip I just flattened it and made it smooth. What I like the most about my pot is that it looks like a turtle. I would make the paint a little darker to improve it.
