Pupils at the Norwich School have won a national design challenge with unique bubble-inspired pottery plates.
The ceramic creations of year seven art and design students at the independent school caught the eye of judges in the Leach Pottery’s Schools Design Challenge, who praised their “high quality of detail”.
The challenge by the iconic Cornish pottery invited pupils to submit designs for a new ceramic piece, responding to the theme ‘a pot for sharing’.
Norwich School pupils were inspired by year group ‘bubbles’ due to Covid-19 regulations and by Leach Pottery’s St Ives location.
Pupils used a bubble technique for applying underglaze colour using liquid soap, creating a host of underwater designs, including fish, crabs and octopi.

Almost 50 pupils were involved and their work is now on display in the Carter Centre, Norwich School’s Art and Design block.
