The year 1 Level 3 Extended Diploma in Art & Design students have been also been getting crafty with clay this month.
They have been creating pinch bowls or pots from raku with some interesting and individual results. The brief being use your imagination and get creative with the clay. Each pot has been inspired by the students own research and they have each thrown their own character into their work.
As tutor Reece says “Some fine and individual examples of pinch pottery!”

Clay Modelling with the Fluffs.

With a view to letting the product design students get to grips with multiple forms of modelling, each week they are tackling a new medium.
This week it was clay. Terracotta to be exact.
With a little help from the ceramics technician Reece the class all had a go at making their own clay hedgehogs.
Everyone produced their own version of the little blighters, some looking more rat than hedgehog, and others more friendly and less menacing than some.
Next week the students tackle balsa wood carving.
