(Honorable Mention – Ceramics)
School: Lathrop High School
As an AP 3-D student this year I have really enjoyed working with my concentration: stacked wheel-thrown pots with thick slip design. I love the challenge of creating evenly crafted and measured stacked forms on the wheel, and then decorating the forms on the outside with thick slip designs and patterns for the glazes to dance around on. As far as the glazing goes, I love the process of spraying 4-8 layers of glazes in different combinations to create different effects. On this piece I love that from a distance it reads like antique browns and olives, but up close it shows rich hues of browns, purples, blues, greens and sandy tans.
