Sculpture and 3D; Clay Houses

Exploring the way clay can be shaped and joined, children learn a range of essential skills for working with this medium. Learn about the sculpture of Rachel Whiteread and create their own clay house tile in response.



Rachel Whiteread

Rachel Whiteread makes sculptures of the spaces underneath, around or in-between objects. Instead of copying what’s there, she focuses on what isn’t there – it’s as if she’s making empty space and air solid!

Her first sculptures were of things she found in her home. She made them by pouring plaster inside her wardrobe, underneath her mattress and inside her hot water bottle. This process is called ‘casting’.
