Tea Cup Composition

This term the children have began to extend and develop their drawing skills by learning how to draw teacups of various shapes and sizes. Their understanding of shape, dimension and scale has been developed through this learning journey by discovering how the eye views objects from different views and its impact on the shapes we see within the objects. For example, the round circle shape that forms the opening of the teacup, when viewed from the side, suddenly becomes an ellipse shape and the handle used to hold the cup, looks much like an ear shape. To the children’s sheer delight, they also giggled to learn that teacups have a ‘foot’ and that the plate that the cup sits on is called a ‘saucer.’

The children were then able to use their own unique sense of design and pattern making by decorating their cup and using colours to bring the designs to life. This week we will commence the next phase of our project, to construct these creations using fireable clay which will be glazed with colours. We are so excited to see the collection of ceramic wonders!
