Very impressed with how clean and clear it was produced with a high level of technical difficulty.

Student statement

Jensen_A-Woman's-Veil-2.jpg
I explore the material context and conventional narrative to lend a unique perspective and question our environment in an interdisciplinary approach to design and art-making that engages problem-solving, sculpture, functional objects, and concepts. I pride myself in craftsmanship, presentation, and conceptual development.
Forcing the re-evaluation of pre-conceptualized familiarity, I aim to cloud the conventional narrative. In material context, I like to juxtapose common material narratives, exemplified in the presented adornments such as stoneware utilized as traditional metal processes. Earthen material was un-glazed and untreated, besides a bisque firing, to maintain a sense of morality and natural origin. A "Woman’s Veil" is an open interpretation of the female experience. Like the hijab, conventionally to conceal, often in some religious respect, but relevantly and more recently, abused in governing and chaining women to brutalist societal standards.
