Last week was my BFA party. The public was invited to see all of the Senior Shows and the President's Traveling Scholarships were announced. I got one! This September I will be traveling to Paris and London to study ceramics and architecture.
Also, today is my college graduation. I truly cannot believe it.
Busy, busy, busy last few weeks. I participated in a fashion show at CIA and then I had finals weeks and then I set up my BFA and survived BFA week and in just a few days I graduate from the Cleveland Institute of Art with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Ceramics.
It is nearly impossible to believe. Here I am modeling a friend's bracelet in the fashion show.
Below is my model, a lovely lady from Case Western who modeled my piece Some things you can do for a woman and some other things you can do to a dress. This dress will also be in a show later this summer.
My model did so well. The styling of the dress was modeled after the model from Funny Face played by Dovima, so I gave her these images of Dovima for inspiration.
This is a belated photo diary of some activities of last semester. The ceramics department and sculpture department coordinated a raku firing and an aluminum pour on the same day. We woke up super early to set up the kiln and start the firing early. While the kiln is red hot we removed the lid and used tongs to transfer the ceramic pieces into pile of combustable materials where they caught on fired and reduced, creating really cool surfaces. It's a very dynamic and exciting process.
Then we got to watch the sculpture students pour molten aluminum into their molds. Super cool.
