Sculpture Final Portfolio

What was your favorite medium that you used this year? Why do you like working with it?

My favorite medium to work with by a land slide is clay. I love the way it feels when I'm working with it and I love the fact that i can manipulate it any way i want. Almost every single project i did this semester was made out of clay. I know that its always such a long process, but i enjoy taking my time and really making sure its up to satisfaction. Working with clay on the wheel especially is just so relaxing and stress relieving. My favorite piece i did with clay is my saturn candle holder. I made it for my sister because saturn is her favorite planet and she loves candles.

- Which project do you feel was the least important in learning the concepts taught in the course? Please explain.

I think that our last, small project we had to do was the least insignificant to me. I didn't really think about any kind of theme or what it really meant to me. We learned so many things this year with technique and different styles. But this last project I didn't use any of them. For this last project me and lizzie did complementary pieces together. We both decided to do peace signs made out of plaster of paris and paint them differently. I think this turned out pretty cool but no special technique or concept was used.

Which project was your most successful? Describe the theme and or topic and the process you went through to complete the project.

I think that my sunflower tile was my most successful project this year. I'm so proud of it and I gave this to my sister as well. I gave it to her for Christmas because sunflowers are her favorite and she almost started crying she loved it so much. The main idea for this project was based of relief work, and i used clay and high relief. The first thing i did was make the bottom, so i would have something to put the petals on. Santiago helped me shape the flowers so they looked really realistic. I really loved working on this project. Mostly because i love doing anything that requires me to work with clay.
