6th grade students recently completed tiles in bas-relief. Students viewed historical examples of bas-relief tiles and discussed how the artists used overlapping and texture to create interest.
Next, students worked on sketches for a tile design that was based on the natural world around them and used overlapping and various textures. Students created their tiles using ceramic techniques of slab, score & slip, additive & subtractive sculpting, and use of tools to create texture.
