Beautiful Work: Young creatives explore clay making

Year 9 students have been creating Beautiful Work in Visual Arts.

Guided by their Teachers Sophie Lampert and Amy Robinson, Year 9 Visual Arts students have been working on their beautifully detailed canopic jars.

“Year 9 have designed their own canopic jars whilst learning about clay construction techniques and decorative ceramic adornment,” said Director of Art and Design Drew Bickford.

“Each work is unique and personalised to an individual ceramic design. Year 9 will fire and glaze their creations to complete these stunning works.

“These ceramic vessels were used by the ancient Egyptians during the mummification process to store and preserve the viscera of their owner for the afterlife. They were commonly either carved from limestone or were made of pottery.”
