Title of Art Piece: Three Sides of Life
Category: Ceramics – 2023
Student/Artist’s Name: Alexandria Sweeney
School: Homer High School
Grade: 11th
Artist Statement: When I made this piece, I tried to think of a theme that would mesh well on a shape with three sides. I landed on Night, Day, and Life, represented by the moon, sun, and plants. The purpose for this object is to be a candle cover and incense holder, where smoke is released through the hole in the top. The color is a shade that makes it pop and ties each face to one another. This was a project that was hand built which was mostly new to me, but I enjoyed sculpting it and am happy with the outcome.
Artwork Dimensions: 7.25″ X 7″ X 7″
