Well folks, it’s here! The 2017 fall semester has arrived. On a bittersweet note, this is my last semester at Marywood, as I graduate in December. I can’t believe in just a few short months, Marywood will no longer be my home. With that being said, I’ve decided to take a step back in time and look at some of my older ceramic work. I immediately can tell how much I’ve improved and grown as an artist. I also notice subtle changes in my work from semester to semester, and I know I’ll always continue to grow and change as an artist, even when my road stops here. Looking back at old work is so inspiring to me, because it shows me what all of my hard work, and long nights in the studios have gone too.
The work I’m posting is from my freshman year, spring semester. These pieces were an example of my first time raku firing at Marywood. Hopefully this semester I’ll be able to raku some pieces again, and make an even better comparison from old to new work. I’m going to continue to further push myself as an artist this semester, considering I’ll have a lot of time in both the painting and ceramics studios. Hopefully by next week I’ll have some good, fresh things to share with you guys!
