Priory - Arts Award - clay vessels

September & October 2011
As part of the school's Arts Award participation and research for the new Pilot programmes for younger children, a clay project was devised. The chidren made vessels over several days using a slab technique. These were rolled flat, indented with pattern, decorated, fired, painted and then glazed and fired again. The finished products were very impressive and the children thoroughly enjoyed the whole tactile experience.
