Fish Mural

This is a group project that I did with 4th year students in order to maintain the Green Schools flag. Students created two group clay murals under the theme ‘water-the coral reef’. Each student began making detailed studies of fish concentrating on colour, texture and pattern. These were used to design and create a clay fish that would feature in the mural.

As there were 30 students in the class, they were split into two groups, each designing a background scene for the clay murals using brainstormed imagery assocaited with the theme. Each student either created a section of background panel with etched designs or a fish learning basic hand building techniques in clay. These were decorated in a mosaic style using recycled materials such as broken bottles, broken plates, drink cans cut up which would melt in the kiln like a glaze.
