Class of: 2022

Major: Illustration BFA

Medium: Clay

Faculty: Michiko Shimada

Prompt: The task was to create a hand build vase, plates, or anything that could hold something in it.

These hand build pieces were inspired by the Japanese Bean-Throwing Festival using the monster, called Setsubun as a character for the plate, and the Japanese style mug that has its own organic shape, and the hand that holds small pieces of jewelries. This was my very first time to work with clay and therefore, the colors turned out to be darker than I expected as there are no predictions when working with ceramics, which, I think, makes it special and fun to do.
