Hello again! It has been a while, but I am back in the saddle for the second half of my third year of my BFA. I was sick for almost a week, which has put me behind in school work, but I am catching up quickly. If you are interested in the projects I have up my sleeve, stay tuned!
I have been granted the position as one of the student Artist in Residence's at ACAD, which means I am making work based of the topic of mental health awareness, specifically Anxiety Disorders and Depression. For the project, I am making ceramic armor using geometric scales that will be individually sewn onto a thick fabric or thin leather jerkin/shirt. I would also like to make a ceramic sword and helmet if time allows me to.
For my classes, I have a sculpture research class, interdisciplinary humanities, a video course (we get to use Super 8 cameras and 8mm film?!), a glaze and clay science course, and a sculpture studio. For my sculpture body of work this semester I am focusing on wearable art. While I have a number of projects planned out, my first one will be... A FABRIC SUIT OF ARMOUR! I have been making patterns and I just got my dress form in the mail, so I can begin my sewing in earnest!
