Our Japanese sushi project in Year 8 at Lansdowne School is coming to a close with some fantastic artwork being achieved by the pupils. We started off this work by creating some sushi food mats. We then started to create some still life drawings of sushi using a primary source. The final part of the work has been to sculpt some sushi out of clay.
We asked the pupils to consider the size and texture of the real life sushi whilst creating our sculptures. The work produced contained elements of an incredibly intricate design. These will now be placed in the kiln to fire. We will then finished off our project by painting the pieces in realistic sushi colours.
A selection of the Year 8 students explain a little more about their work in the video above.
