Our chickens were made from an upturned pinch pot. Then we added a beak, comb, wings, tail and finally cut holes for the eyes. The chicken was dipped in a barium blue glaze with cobalt oxide and stoneware fired. We looked at the sculpture “Blue Cockerel” by Katharina Fritsch for inspiration.
Beau’s sculpture will be on display at the SATIPS National Art Exhibition at Cheltenham College Prep. The exhibition is open to the public from 24th April – 5th May and is well worth a visit. Well done, Beau, for having your work selected.
