Greek Clay Vases - Part 1

As we have been learning about Greek Art this term, which has included painting our very own Greek Vases using the 'red-figure' and 'black-figure' style. It was now time to create them using clay........





The children absolutely loved doing this, it was a chance for them to all be very creative. The first stage was to create the 'vase shape' which we found was a bit of a challenge, but after lots of practise the children were able to create the shape.





We then began to carve some patterns into our vases, which was another chance for the children to show off their creativity. 

Now we need to wait for about a week to let the clay dry, and then we will paint the base layer!
