Ceramics

Ceramics was a course I took as my last opportunity to learn another hands-on skill given all the resources provided to me in college. Due to the COVID-19 circumstances, half of the semester converted to an online course where I had to get a little bit more creative with my resources at home to complete projects and more.

Project Sweetheart

The first project in Intro to Ceramics. The amazing part about this process was learning and applying a variety of techniques to create a complex form.

Espresso Cup

Due to COVID-19, there wasn't an opportunity to experiment with glazes. I dropped off my cup and the professor asked me what glaze I wanted. I told her to surprise me since I had no idea what my black slip would look like with different glazes. For example, it would've resulted in a totally different color if I used an orange slip instead of black.

 

I'll never forget these unpredictable times.

COVID Workspace

I had extra wood that I wanted to laser cut for other projects but due to the quarantine, I no longer had access to the studio or the woodshop. 

The lack of proper tools allowed for a handmade aesthetic.
