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!

There Is A Life After JAPR?!

After a weekend of doing absolutely nothing, I am back in the chaos that is the ceramic studio. I am already working on my next idea, my new project. Our ceramics class is now linked to a beginning printmaking class for our final assignment, which I am excited for. We were asked to listen to a podcast from NPR's Radiolab:

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.
