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!

New work

So I ned to catch everyone up on what's been going on lately. I finished my finals, yay, and had a private gallery show in Sacramento! Anyways, I really enjoyed getting my work out there away from the school.

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.
