Clay makes for a valuable lesson!

pottery artist in residence project at Dines Green Primary SchoolThese value oaks were commissioned and made by all the children at Dines Green Primary School in Worcester.

Each child made and painted a pottery leaf based upon one of the six school values. Quite a challenging task to make mini clay decoration symbolising notions of respect, resilience, reflection, curiosity, empathy and honesty!

Mammoth project

Collaborative terracotta mammoth made by families at WM&AG and Eastnor PotteryThis rather striking terracotta mammoth was made by Jon the Potter at Worcester Museum and Art Gallery. Families were invited to drop by and help make the ice age beast as part of an exciting year long project called Lost Landscapes of Worcestershire. The project culminates in the summer of 2018 with an exhibition at both the Museum in Forgate Street and The Hive.

Spot the stegosaurus

A raw glazed stegosaurus made by a child from Woodlands Infant School in Solihull Feb 2017This jurasic clay creation was made by a pupil from a reception class at Woodlands Infants School, Shirley in Solihull.

The #stegosaurus has been bisque fired and dipped in glaze, awaiting to have it’s feet wiped before its packed into the kiln for a second glaze firing. All the ‘white stuff’ will melt at 1080 degrees to form a smooth glassy surface revealing green, terracotta and sandstone colours.
