Year 2 Inspired by famous sculptor

Year 2 have been learning about the work of famous sculptor, Grayson Perry.

Year 2 have been studying the work of sculptor & potter Grayson Perry.  Perry is a contemporary artist famous for his work with ceramics.

Within his work, Perry explores themes such as identity, social status and gender. He is something of a divisive figure inspiring fun and a sense of wit as well as anger and fear. 

We used air-dry clay and a pottery technique known as pinching to create our own pots.  The ones with lids were double pinch pots joined together. Once dried they were then given a PVA/ water mix to seal the clay. We used different materials to add decoupage in the Grayson Perry style.
