It seems that some of the work I’m doing with my Year 7s has inspired the theme for our school Art exhibition this year. What with all the hats and teapots, what else but the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party? Although, I must confess that I am getting a little tired of all the Alice In Wonderland references.
I started by getting the students to roll up a ball of clay, hollow it out, fill it with newspaper and then put it all back together again. They could then add all details like spouts and handles separately. These are not functioning teapots by the way. No tea is getting through these spouts that’s for sure!
These teapots are still drying, then into the exciting kiln.
Of course, when they come to life with beautiful colours, you’ll be the first to see!
