I titled this piece "Grow a Pear". I created this pear by rolling out ropes of clay and joining them together. The ropes create real lines. The vase itself is an organic form. The illusion of space is created through the contrast of the brown stem against the yellow pear. The different coil bumps are tactile texture. The inside is a smooth, green visual texture. I used yellows, greens, and reds. Formal balance is created through the wrapped around ropes. The main focal point is the brown stem because of the contrast between the dark brown and the light yellow. The vase is unified through the yellow color and the repetition of the the rope forms. I titled this piece "Grow a Pear" because everyone needs a pear every once in a while, so why not grow one? This vase is applied art because it can serve as a container. My goal was to take the horizontal cross contour lines and create a three dimensional pear with coils of clay. I like the pot because it's bright and intriguing. I think I was successful in creating a dimensional cross contour pear.

I created this 10” x 10” x1” piece using clay and slab construction, titled, “Calm Mandala”. The mandala in the center gives the plate an intricate section. There are real sgraffito lines in zigzags around the triangles on the outer edge, small triangles created within the bigger triangles, and diamond lines that outline the colorful shapes inside the mandala. The slab piece is in a disk form. The sizes of the diamond shapes within the mandala appear farther away as they get smaller creating an illusion of space. The tactile texture of the plate is smooth from the glaze, and has bumpy texture where the sgraffito lines are. The color scheme is cool colors. This piece has formal and radial balance because it’s symmetrical from the center out. I gave the plate a variety of shapes and colors and sizes. The emphasis and focal point is on the centered, complex design of the mandala. The lightest color blue contrasts with the darker blue; and the green stands out from the rest of the plate. Harmony is created in this piece from the patterns of the mandala; balance and value is repeated throughout the plate design. The onlooker’s eyes will move from the outer area of the mandala, inward; and from the inside of the mandala, to the edges of the plate (where the next area of detail is). The repeating, symmetrical patterns; as well as a cool color scheme and triangular shapes unify this artwork. This artwork is called “Calm Mandala”; “calm” implies a relaxed feeling, and a mandala in Indian religions represents the universe. This artwork is nonobjective; there are no recognizable objects, just shapes and colors. This is also Applied Art because the work is symmetrical and meant to flow together in a functional way. My main concern in the artwork was with the art elements: shapes, color, variety, and lines (formalism). The emotion I wanted to express was a relaxing feeling by the use of cool colors and perfectly proportional shapes. I like the work because the colors I had in mind came out the way I wanted to. I was successful in using the elements used to create a unified composition; the shapes and colors draw attention to the plate. The interpretational goal was achieved because of the cool and soft colors and triangular shapes are relaxing to look at. The art on it portrays the relaxing mood I tried to depict...Sacred Geometry

I titled this mosaic "Medallion". The size of the table is 14.25" by 17.75". To complete this mosaic, I cut shards of pottery and glued them onto the table to complete a picture. The cut shards create implied lines. Rectangles, triangles, and circles are the geometric shapes created in the mosaic, while other organic shapes are created. The illusion of space is created through the intense colors moving forward and the dull colors staying behind. The texture of the tile ia tactile. My mosaic has a warm color scheme of reds, yellows, red-violets, violets. The mosaic has radial balance because it can be cut in half and be the same on both sides. The different colors and shapes of the cut glass create variety. The main focal point is the yellow circle in the middle because it is the center of the composition. Harmony is created through the flowing patterns of the alternating colors. The whole mosaic is unified through the repetition of the warm colors and geometric shapes. I titled this artwork "Medallion" because it is a medallion. This artwork is fine art because it gives a feeling of a warm sunset. My interpretational goal was to have the audience get the feeling of a sunset when they looked at my mosaic. I like the artwork because it is clean-cut and visually pleasing. I think I was successful in creating the feeling of a sunset through the warm color scheme and the colors of a fading sky.
