I am currently a student at Sierra Nevada College in beautiful Lake Tahoe. I am working towards my BFA in ceramics. I am relatively new to the ceramic art world, but I am quickly making up ground and filling every moment of my life with art shows, conventions, ceramics history and time in the studio. This blog is just a collection of what I make, what I see and things that peek my interest in the art world. Enjoy!

Everyone responded well to my egg piece, both at my show and through my department committee. So I have decided to make a whole series of "eggs". I have also been reading a few books that my professor loaned me for my new ceramic adventure. Now I am exploring texture, shape, and design of my new hollow, closed vessels. I am also working in a smaller scale so I can start busting these out and really focusing on the texture.

Time to work on my final projects and expand on my JAPR work.
Also, so far I have sold over 1000 dollars in pieces from my show. I am trying to set up a gallery show in Sacramento for the holiday season. Hopefully I can pull it off.

Desperately Seeking Symmetry
Then, we were paired up and asked to produce some images that reflect our thoughts on the program. Each group has at least on ceramics major, a.k.a., me, with a printmaking major. We are going to be making prints of our images, and stencils to use on ceramic pieces we are going to make. It is a chance for ceramic majors to experience a new way of decorating our pieces and test the printmaking majors to expand beyond 2-D.
I wanted to share this podcast as well simply because I thought it was an amazing show and very very interesting.
Anyways, I am really excited for this project and this will be our final assignment and part of Advanced Ceramics' final grade.
Pictures to come.

Anyways, I am excited to hear the feedback from my professors, who have helped me so much, so I can start thinking about my BFA show next year. It will be three times as big and a million times more stressful, but after today, I feel like I can take on the world. Bring it on!
To look at everyone's work and look for upcoming photos and the recording of everything check out our SNC/FA Facebook page.

Just some samples of my pieces on the distressed wood shelves I just finished yesterday.
This is my wall, the previous show is still being broken down, I can start hanging shelves this weekend. It's starting to become real,...super excited.

Here is a nostalgic moment just before I flip my last piece. Also, another picture of my amphora piece. That my little space in the studio, completely full of work, tools and clay.
