I created "Peppers in Pointillism using markers on a 9'x10' matboard. I have displayed a green pepper propped up against a yellow pepper which is on it's side. A red pepper is leaning dependently on the yellow peppers right side (opposite the green pepper). The peppers and pepper stems created organic, 2-D shapes. Altogether, this created illusions of space in overlapping (creating shadows), placement (the green and red peppers being further back in the visual plane), and values (fading colors for light and using compliments to darken). My color scheme was red, yellow, and green, with complimentary values being purple, red, and dark green. Principles of design that I used were informal balance, creating asymmetry. The focal point of the design is the yellow pepper because of its brightness and placement in the focal plane. The places that your eyes are directed to are where the edges of peppers meet. My work is overall unified by the objects and technique that is consistently use

The title of my 2”x5”x5” clay pinch pot is “Little Hand Pinch Pot”. It's a small bowl with small hand imprints on the outside and 3 dark blue wavy lines on outside and one dark wavy blue line painted on inside. The organic shapes are hand impressions, and the geometric shape is the entire pot itself which is a half sphere. With space, the real space is equal to 5 inches. The values are dark blue for darks, blue for mid-tones, and light blue for the lights. The sgraffito and imprints are the tactile textures, visual textures are the inner painted line. The color scheme is a blue scheme. It is formally balanced as it is symmetrical on both sides. The variety is in the darker shades in the impressed areas and on the inner line. The focal point is the hand imprints as they are centrally located and are the largest. The rhythm is how shapes and the lines are repeated. From the hand prints the eyes are directed to the lines. The work is unified through color, textures, shapes, lines, and values. The title of the work is “Little Hand Pinch Pot”, it tells how a small hand was imprinted on a pinch pot. This piece is applied because it is functional. The work is made in the style of emotionalism as it shows how the hand is excited and waving hello. I like the work and feel its ok. The work is successful in showing the message with the lines adding to the small hand imprints, and the inner line and the bright colors showing the hands motion and excitement in giving a “h

The title of my 9”x5”x5” coil vase is “Pebble Swirl Vase”. It is a coil vase painted with orange underglazes that contains spirals, pebbles and straight coils. The forms of the vase are the pebbles which are geometric, and the spirals which are organic. The real space is equal to 5 Inches. The values are dark browns and oranges, medium browns and oranges, and cream, alongside, pale orange. The textures are tactile, as the glass is smooth and the coils are bumpy. The color scheme is composed of warm, empowered oranges. The vase is formally and symmetrically, balanced, as all sides are identical and “in the round”. The variety of the vase is from the pattern of the coils. The focal point is the large spiral row, as it is centrally located and is a large detail. The rhythm of the piece is in its shapes and coils, with your eyes being directed from the large coils to the smaller pebble and coil rows. The vase is unified by the shapes and colors. The title of the piece “Pebble Swirl Vase”, tells how it is a vase with pebbles and swirls on it. The piece is objective as it is a recognizable vase of coils. The vase is in the style of emotionalism, as the orange colors and coils show of perseverance. I do like the work and feel it is good, as it is ok and resembles the its sketch. The vase is successful in interpreting the feeling of perseverance, which is supported by the orange colors and the coils with no end.
