Student Work 2013-2014

Introduction to Sculpture – Fall 2014

Steel Figure Project

The students were asked to use steel rod wire and welding techniques to construct a figural representation of themselves. The scale had to be to scale with their own form. They were to think of what defined their own personalities and identities while constructing the figures. They were able to add plaster on top of the steel.

Artist Research Project

The students were asked to select a contemporary sculptor off of a distributed list and research that artist. From their research of the concept and materials that their artist used, they were to create a work of their own that had some relation or connection to their research.

Artist Research Project

The students were asked to select a contemporary artist off of a distributed list and research that artist. From their research of the concept and materials that their artist used, they were to create a work of their own that had some relation or connection to their research. It was up to the student to choose what the relation would be and what materials they would use to accomplish the work.

The Union for Contemporary Art

Recently, I was selected as one of the inaugural fellows for the 2012 Winter Fellowship program with the Union for Contemporary Art. With this fellowship I’ve been awarded a $600 stipend, a studio space for six months, as well as professional development as I look into applying to graduate schools. I’m so excited to be involved with this program and am looking forward to some quality time with a studio.
