I am a fourth year Fine Arts major earning a BFA and Visual Art Teaching License at the University of Cincinnati College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning. I mainly work ceramics and mixed media. This blog is to document my work, my processes, and the inspiration I find in everything and everyday life. Enjoy!
Here are some red iron oxide decals on small test tiles before they are fired - the imagery is from old photos I have been hoarding (from my aunt Tina I believe), and also lace, hexagons, and maps as additional patterning. They should come out sepia tone ish.
After a long and much needed winter break, school started back up this week. I am feeling kind of stuck, not really sure what to do, but I know that I need to be using ovals. Don’t know why, but I do. I have been looking at maps of brain functions, seeking inspiration for the layout of an installation. Also still experimenting with the ways I can use thread and pins. I think I want to get messier, more tangled, like the image above. It is reminiscent of neurons and also speaks to the way that memory works.
