1. What project was your most challenging and why?My most challenging project during this class was without a doubt my tree-woman piece. This project took me over a month to complete, and the focus, and detail that it required was not only time consuming but very tedious. This project required my full attention, and my ability to constantly be problem-solving. My piece constantly encountered obstacles, and there were many times when I doubted that my piece would come out looking the way I had envisioned it. However, I was beyond happy when my piece was completed, and I am prouder of this piece than I have ever been of any art I have created.
2. What did you get out of this class? What was your take away?
This class was not only a wonderful period to wind down and enjoy school (for once), but it was also a journey for me. I have never really considered myself much of an artist, but after taking Sculpture and Ceramics, I feel inspired in many ways to explore my artistic self. I absolutely adored this class, and I plan to continue with sculpture and working with clay for as long as I possibly can!
3. If you were to say your art had a style, what would it be and why?
I believe that my art has a natural, free style to it. I love to just allow myself to be immersed in the experience of art; watching watercolors flow, building clay to look a certain organic, natural way. I think that I create my art in this way primarily because it reflects who I am and who I want to be: free. Sculpture and Ceramics has allowed me to look at myself in a different light, and I am very thankful for that.
