About Me

Hey Everyone! I am Bianca Del Cioppo and I am in love with art!

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!

Odds and Ends

 Just a few pictures I came across, going through my files. I am also big into henna so here are a few photos of the designs I create.

These are two flute type things that I made for my dad, who is big into musical instruments. (Right)
I also found one more nude drawing that I have been playing around with for a while. I love having a pregnant model, something about seeing and recording that intimate moment in life that excites me. (Below)

NCECA 2011

Soon after my first workshop experience, I joined my school's Clay Club. They were discussing NCECA, and I had no idea what it was. It interested me so I signed up. It blew my mind! Everything I could possibly imagine about or in the clay world, all under one roof. I was totally inspired and here are a few things I absolutely love.

 These are two cups that were in the annual cup sale. I now own the one on the left and I love it. I am obsessed with some of these handles these artists do.
 Two projects that some artists were working on during the week. So amazing.

I love these mouse cups! So cute and whimsical.  (Above)
Some other pieces that I saw there that I loved. (Below)

 This was hilarious! The Art Stream was there, putting on their show as usual and on day there was a very realistic Art Stream cake! I loved it.

My first ceramics workshop, with Josh Deweese

 This was my first experience with ceramic work outside of school and I was totally hooked. Josh is an amazing artist and I was truly inspired.

These are a few of Josh's pieces. Love his style. (Above)
The high fire kiln about to be unloaded at the end of the week. (Below)
