Roman Coin Horde Jug – Nate Henry

Nate has recently turned 7 and this is his second year displaying at Crown Art and Science as a Youth.

He was inspired by a picture of a coin horde spilling out of a jug in a picture. He used that image and a book on Roman Pottery with many pictures to make his own jug.

Since last year he has also made a vase, another face cup and some marbles he had hoped to bring to events. He used air dry clay by crayola.

He had wanted gold coins for his display but they were chocolate and too big.
