Sophomore, Art and Physics Double Major
My first encounter with clay happened around 2nd grade while I was home-schooled. My mom bought a chunk of clay that I remember shaping and forming into various objects. I have always loved working with my hands, whether it be stained glass making, guitar playing, or carpentry projects. I think this is also why I have enjoyed ceramics so much.
I am most inspired by artwork that is clever or art that makes me smile. I am interested in creating pieces that are both functional and recognizable. I am inspired by things found in nature, especially animals.
