A lovely thing happened a few weeks back. I had an email from a French artist and teacher called Mathilde who works with kids and adults and clay in various settings all over Paris. Inspired by my work she set one of her groups of kids a project about what they love or dream about....and here is what they made.
I love that these just turned up, all fully formed, in my inbox.
I love that they are wet clay, and mixed clay in many cases, captured in these photos in this wonderful soon-to-pass state.
I love Mathilde's small descriptions and insights into her student's starting points:
Sami loves football and was inspired by the World Cup / Lina loves nature/Marc is passionate about the game "Angry Brids". He represented all the characters / Amy loves underwater world / Corentin loves fish and whales / Julianne collects rabbits / Anne-Laure loves Hello Kitty, hearts and flowers, like all girls...
Thanks to Mathilde and her class!
