Potter Jon Williams photo by Henriette LangSpent a very busy day at Lickey Hills Primary School working with a grand total of 240 children in a day!!! All the students and staff came to school dressed as an artist or famous artwork and juding by the quality of costume, a lot of care and creativity had gone into the atire. We made some beautiful collaborative clay pots all beautifully documented by Henriette Lang.

The day also made it into the Bromsgrove Standard!

Collaborative Crest of St Michaels

Each child in St Michaels Primary school Bodenham made a selfie clay tile to make up a giant tile panel of the school logoBack in September I worked with the whole of St Michaels Primary School in Bodenham to make this fantstic pottery tile panel in the shape of the school badge.

Each child made a tile decorated with a self portrait and the final piece will be hung in the entrance to the School.

Tenbury Terracotta

Collaborative pottery made by Eastnor Pottery and Tenbury Wells Primary SchoolVery pleased with how these collaborative clay works came out of the kiln. They were made by the children at Tenbury Wells Primary School in Worcestershire in the Summer term 2014.

The terracotta sculptures were inspired in part by Martin Waddell’s fabulous children’s picture book ‘Owl babies’.

Pottery leaves

Clay leaf tiles made by the children at Staunton and Corse Primary SchoolAn Autumnal collection of ceramic leaves made by the children at Staunton & Corse Primary School in Gloucestershire.

Although we weren’t directly involved in the making, we agreed to decorate, glaze and fire the tiles in our kiln.

I think they look really special and will make a wonderful mobile in the school.
