31 Mar Pegasus Wings Take Flight
In Term 4 of last year, Mrs. Harrington’s Year 10 class took on the ambitious project of creating a ceramic mosaic mural of Pegasus wings to display on the school grounds. The idea being that students could stand in front of them and pose for a selfie, making it appear as if they had wings.
The process of making the wings took over two months from start to finish. Each feather was hand cut and shaped out of clay. Students then carved and painted their own designs into the feathers. Black underglaze was rubbed into the cracks of the feathers to make the designs pop and they were fired in the school kiln.
A final glaze coat was applied to each feather, and a second firing done to finish them off. All feathers were glued down to a wooden base and grouted over to complete the two wings.
You can now find this beautiful mosaic on the side of O Block.
