These pots were influenced by Ancient Greek Pots. 3 separate sessions were needed to gradually form each pot out of the very soft and malleable terra cotta clay. Once the pots were finished, they were fired and then painted with acrylic paints using a restricted palette equivalent to that used by the ancient Greeks. This art project enabled each child to bring the elements of sculpture and painting together. The project was started in year 3, and completed in year 4.
