Jan Griffiths is a professional Ceramist who is inspired by organic matter. She makes both small pieces as well as sculpture and creates work showing texture.
Jan very kindly agreed to come in to school to teach our year 10s the technique of slab building. This was their first experience with clay and the students enjoyed the opportunity to create their own pots that showed how their work, based on the environment, has influenced them.
Students created natural forms developing textures and effects using a variety of tools and objects and considering this was their first experience with clay, the outcomes were extremely impressive!
These will now be fired ready for glazing and we look forward to seeing what else students can produce over the course of the year. We would like to thank Jan for her time and passion and look forward to her return.
