Describe: I made a little backpack made out of denim and an old tank top. The subject matter would be to make a functional piece that I could use later on. I initially was going to make a bag and call it my "Sherlock Satchel" but I'm not so sure what I should call it now...nothing sounds cool. In this "art piece" you can clearly see that I like Sherlock Holmes and jeans with a vintage style.
Create: The only media I used in this project was denim, cloth, and fabric glue, with melting Sherlock’s face onto the denim. I basically just used the fabric glue to hold everything together and heat to melt the silhouette.
Big Idea: I had been really wanting to make my own functional piece for a while now, and I love jeans and the style of it, as well as Sherlock. In my work I try to show the devotion and hard work to show people how much I enjoyed making this piece.
Goals: I planned on making this bag so that could be durable and last me a while. If anything happens to it then I definitely will try to fix it and keep it all together. I also had a goal at making something useful for myself which I finally got to accomplish that!
Thoughts: I learned quite a full stuff during this project, I learned that you need to have a goal ahead of time of what you want or it won’t come out the way you want it to. Also, always be attentive on what you are doing and make sure that there isn’t a step you are missing to do. Although I wasn’t so sure how it would all turn out, I am satisfied with my “Sherlock Satchel”. Now I know how to use cloth and fabric material in my art which would help me make more handy things.
Describe: My art is a clay piece, and it is named ...... The penguin is obviously made out of white clay and glaze. The subject was to make a realistic detailed animal but i decided to add some humor in it as well.
Create: I used clay to build my sculpture and many tools alongside to carve out details and work with the clay. Such as a roller to make the clay a certain thickness and clay utensils to cut my pieces and all. Sometimes I had to soften the clay or water it a bit to keep it moist.
Big Idea: I was inspired by the cuteness that I saw on the internet and I wanted to make something on the easier side. I wanted to show some humor in my art by adding the Coke bottle.
Goals: I did accomplish a goals of working with clay and creating a sculpture. Now I have more experience with different mediums in art.
Thoughts: I learned that with clay you need to have patience and effort in your work. While making my other pieces I'll now know different ways to making something.
