clay 3

 In Y4, as part of their study into Vikings we made some longships. We adapted the coil method that they had previously used when they were Y3's (see a post recently for the current Y3's ref. Greek pots). The lollipop sticks will be the stern post and prow (with attached card dragons head). We smoothed the insides and kept the coils showing on the outside to represent the wooden planking.
we'll paint them when they're dry, add cotton sails and embroidery thread rigging.

Meanwhile, I've managed to do a few small mixed media pieces. These are destined for either my Etsy or Folksy shops, or I might even dabble with the behemoth that is ebay!

Collage, acrylics, ink & crayon on canvas board, 13 x 18cm.
