WESTON College has been commissioned to create a ceramic 'Tree of Life' this spring made in conjunction with local primary pupils for their school.
Children at Worlebury St Paul's C of E Voluntary Assisted Primary School will draw Bible-inspired pictures from Genesis depicting the creation of the world in seven days.
College Ceramic lecturer Simon Taylor and third year degree student Hazel Jackson will then transform seven winning pictures into seven ceramic friezes.
Simon said: "The Tree of Life project is so exciting. It provides an opportunity for pupils to showcase their creative talents that will be combined with Hazel's designs and made into a six foot by five foot ceramic sculpture to enhance the school's spiritual garden."
"There are seven year groups in the school. Girls and boys from each class will put their picture forward for a competition which will be voted for by parents, governors and church members."
Ceramic student artist Hazel, 25, of The Boulevard, added: "I'm really looking forward to working with the children and creating a wonderful work of art."
Worlebury St Pauls C of E, VA Primary School Headteacher, Gillian Quick, said: "This is a wonderful opportunity for our children to work with Weston College to produce a ceramic tree depicting The Creation.
"The project will be a lasting testimony to commemorate us becoming a Primary School this year. The theme of the Creation was chosen because of our Church school ethos and will involve all of our children and school community."
