A collaborative animal created by staff from a birmingham nursery schoolTwenty five teaching staff from Brearley & Teviot Nursery School in Birmingham visited the studio a few weeks ago for a spot of pottery teambuilding.

The staff were split into four sub-groups and were encouraged to ‘play’ with pencils, paper, and the coilpot technique – each group reaching a concensus on what to make.

Four magnificent terracotta beasts were constructed – each one a hybrid of several animals or inspired by the children’s interests.

The finished pieces will be hidden at strategic places around the school grounds for the children to discover amongst the bushes and shrubs.
