Title of Art Piece: Honoring Family
Category: Multicultural Art
Student/Artist’s Name: John Gore
School: Cantwell High School
Artist Statement: My inspiration for this piece was from my late Aunt Caroline who had given a pair of earrings similar to these ones to my sister. I loved the way these earrings looked so I decided to learn how to make them myself with porcupine quills.
