Dimensions: 34” x 11” x 10”|Material(s): clay, slip|Process(es): throw large vases trim and stack together, throw/trim small vases, cut holes, make walls, add design|Curatorial Note: This is a complex, sophisticated form that benefits from not being glazed as it feels more grounded to the earth. The photo presentation is also exciting and succeeds in giving us a sense of how we might experience the work in the round.

Student statement

My inquiry is a continuation of my 2022 AP 3-D Art and Design portfolio. I liked the concepts I developed towards the end of my portfolio, so I decided to evolve these ideas and showcase them with a completely new portfolio. My new sustained investigation for 2023 would further investigate three-dimensional geometrical surfaces compared to round, more curved, spherical surfaces. As I continued developing my portfolio, I began to lose the main objective for my pieces, and my artwork was not turning out how I envisioned. However, with my teacher's help and feedback from other students in the class, I was able to get back to the basics and blossom my creativity from there.

I wanted to explore the contrast between sharp, geometrical surfaces with round and spherical surfaces. Some pieces were a combination of both forms to see if it would alter the overall look of the vases.
