Title of Art Piece: Mt. Doom
Student/Artist’s Name: Josh Hege
School: Lathrop High School
Artist Statement: This fall I was fortunate enough to watch a teapot demo by Christa Assad. Since this show I have strived to apply the same angular and mechanical aspects of Assad’s work to my own. I used a simple metallic brown glaze hoping that no attention would be drawn away from the sharp angles in this piece.
