Malta has many iconic buildings that, especially for a student with special needs, may go unnoticed. The project started with site visits to places such as Mosta Dome, Hagar Qim and the Parliament building where, assisted by staff, they took photos of the buildings with the aim of later creating them in ceramic form. The photos were to be used as part of the project work. The students were guided through the process of making templates in cardboard of the buildings they had chosen to reproduce. Slabs with multiple layers were used as the main technique for creating the ceramic pieces. Cardboard templates enabled the students to cut the clay accurately and add modeled features. The resulting 3D models and relief clay objects have been exhibited around the school together with the research photos.
