Citius, Altius, Fortius

During art technology, we created clay bowls centered around images of 'sport in action'
that incorporated our Olympics theme.
I chose an image of myself competing in a cross country
event because of the excitement and passion this sport provides. We also selected a motto to accompany our image that inspires us. Mine reads as
 “The gull that flies the highest sees the furthest.” - John Bach from Jonathan Livingston Seagull.

Olympic Enquiry Topic.
Part of this topic involved looking at the images of athletes from the Ancient Olympic Games. Many of the sports we see depicted on Greek pottery are easy to recognize. The images provide us with much information about sport and the important role it played in the ancient world.
Students were asked to find images of themselves participating in an Olympic sport which they were involved in or were passionate about.  They used these images to decorate their terracotta bowls using traditional techniques.
I am sure any Olympic athlete, ancient or modern, would recognize the commitment and energy Arlia has shown in her ceramic piece.
