So in ceramics, I have to make a thing, and represent a song by making something on each side. I was thinking about doing Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds, but I want to know what other Beatles songs you guys think would be cool.

How are you supposed to represent the song? By making something in the song? So, if you do LSD (has anyone else ever noticed that song spells out LSD...?), you have to make ceramic stars or something?

If so, what about 'Strawberry Fields Forever'? It'll be quite hard to make the gates, I suppose, but apart from that? You could do the sign, too.

Or 'Because'. You could make a world and put the lyrics next to it, etc.

Can't think of anything else for now, sorry.

You could go real creative and do "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite" -- or you could be surreal and do a Glass Onion.

There are a lot of options.. She Came In Through The Bathroom Window wouldn't be that hard; on the other hand, there are other songs like Doctor Robert where it's up to you to decide who he looks like.. Or to return to Abbey Road, Maxwell's Silver Hammer.

Maybe you could do Octopus's Garden, to give Ringo a mention. Though I kind of like the idea of Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite as stated above.

"Strawberry Fields Forever" isn't actually that hard to do, though if you want to do something really fun, go for "I Am The Walrus" or "Two of Us."

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Perhaps Penny Lane would be interesting, as well.

Revolution 9. a-hard-days-night-george-10

You could do Across The Universe. Pools of sorrow, waves of joy, words flowing into a paper cup, a million eyes (well, not quite a million on your box), broken light, restless wind inside a letterbox...

Geometry, wisdom, tangerines... "The time is gone, the song is over, thought I'd something more to say..."

Also known as Egg-Rock, Egg-Roll, E-George, Eggy, Ravioli, Eggroll Eggrolli...

Purple stuff... ellipses...

Good idea -- the box itself would be the letterbox!  Also -- different glazed colors for each side, not all the same color?

I ended up doing Across The Universe. I just finished painting it today, and I'd say it's probably the ugliest thing I made in ceramics all year.

You could have created a frightful mess of mangled clay and called it "Helter Skelter"blue-meanie
