Towards The Light
Towards the light is our school motto. Mrs Dixon was the ceramic artist that helped create this piece of art work. A group of children from each class took turns at adding on different sculptures such as birds and angels. The border has wonderful tiles on it.
The angels dress was made by cutting out a smooth flat piece of clay, then you choose a pattern to press on to the clay. After that you had to mould the patterned piece of clay into a dress shape, then you added the head, limbs and the halo.
For the birds we made delightful branches; we used a cheese wire to cut the clay to texture it in the way the branches would feel.
Around the outside we put tiles. We used leaves with strong veins and arteries to press them into the soft clay. The process was really interesting and we throughly enjoyed ourselves.
