Salon Style

Salon Style is a sculpture commissioned by BYU painting professor Peter Everett for his painting class to paint. In December 2009 the sculpture along with the paintings will be exhibited in Gallery 303 in BYU's Harris Fine Art Center.

This piece was inspired by my reconciliation of painting verses sculpture. It was the natural evolution from Vacant.
Although it is smaller than I envisioned due to restraints of door sizes leading into the painting class, I may be adding to it before the exhibition.

Metronomic Echo - Collaboration

Metronomic Echo is a collaboration piece I did with Lia Kim Farnsworth for our "New Genre" class.

Von Allen my ceramics teacher challenged each of us to take a symbol and create 25 models in modeling clay from it, then we chose one to enlarge up to 25-30" in long beach clay. I chose a five pointed star as my symbol. Creating 25 models was a stretch of our imaginations, so it was a very valuable exercise. I relearned how brainstorming and drafting can help when beginning a project. I felt good about the model I chose to enlarge.

After a few quick calculations I was ready to build. The main point of the lesson was to learn how versatile pinching is and how large you can build in clay. I had a rough beginning, middle, and end but I learned a lot and was happy with the results.

I have been slowly letting it dry and secretly enjoying having it around because I am pretty sure it will explode in the kiln just like my classmate's sculptures did.
