Describe: This art piece is watercolors, India ink, and tape with ink on it. The subject matter of it is to encourage people and let them find comfort in the quote that helps people make better decisions. The title of this piece is "Honorable Wisdom" and here you can clearly see the type of technique I used for the setting.
Create: This piece is made of watercolor on thick paper with the birds made of India ink and the lettering from a technique that I just learned where you put tape on top of words and then drench it with water and peel of the water so that only the words are left.
Big Idea: I was inspired by the show Sherlock...hence the quote and I also like quotes that promote you to make good decisions.
Goals: As a goal I want for people to feel moved by the art work and capture the moment. I think this piece does go deep to people and touches their hearts.
Thoughts: Well I had very title time to work on this project so I learned that it's best to have more time to prepare. So there wasn't much time to envision what I wanted but I'm glad with with came out.
Describe: My art has a beginner, learning look to it (which makes sense considering this is only the second time I work with throwing on the wheel) and I am really enjoying it. The subject matter is to have functional ceramics that I would be able to use for my own daily pleasure.
Create: I made my mug and plate from white ceramics that were thrown one the wheel. I had to use different tools while throwing on the wheel, like a needle tool, a sponge, and the wooden thingy.
Big Idea: I was actually inspired by Lauryn and my brother. I saw them doing cool stuff with clay and seeing how useful they were, so I was enticed to try it out. The color I glazed the mug was to represent the rustic style I like and reminds me of when I used to live in Arizona.
Goals: As an artist I’d like to show my hard work in my piece and the beauty in the simplicity. With this project I was able to accomplish my goal of making simple functional ceramics that display found memories of my past.
Thoughts: I learned many things while making this project such as knowing how to make a centered bowl or mug, also figuring out different ways to make your glazing creative. Not everything came out as I thought it would but I’m glad that it all worked out because it turned out cool. I think in the future I’ll be doing more ceramics for my personal use or even to sell.
