Indigenous Terracotta Clay animals

DSC00010Grade 2 students watched a dreamtime story depicting various Australian animals to inspire the students before they planned what they wanted to make with clay.

They then used terracotta clay to create pinch pot animals, focussing on creating a pinch pot, using slip to join and shape.

Once the artworks were fired, the students used traditional Indigenous colours, lines and patterns to decorate their artworks.DSC00007
