  • The only creative aspect I believe I have is making ceramics. When I’m engaged in making something, whether it be a wheel bowl, coil pot or even a lighthouse, I put aside everything that goes on in my head or around me and create beautiful pieces of artwork. Doing ceramics is very enjoyable and in my opinion, extremely relaxing. \n
  • Ceramics is another name for pottery. It’s a form of art where you create uniques pieces with clay, by hand. Ceramics isn’t just a form of making things to eat and drink out of, there are many different ideas you where you can express how you feel or emotions.\n
  • Ceramics is one of the most ancient arts ever, starting as early as 24,000 BC. As soon as humans figured out that water and dirt made clay, what they could be made with the clay and how the clay could become useful when harden, that was how this work of art was began.\n
  • The first manufacturing of any type of ceramics was in Mesopotamia and India (mostly India) where the first tiles were made. This is where the first of ceramics was made but everything else originated all around the world. Egypt is another important country where the first glazing process began.\n

  • Usually when people think of ceramics they think of pieces you make to eat or drink out of and what beautiful decorations they could be used for around the house. That is so not the case. There are many pieces of ceramics that are very abstract and have no type of meaning to them. You always hear about artist expressing themselves through paintings, or drawings but not so much ceramics. Ceramics is one of the most expressive arts there are.\n

  • Takaezu is one of the best artists of all time who shows diversity in all of her artwork. From where she lives to what she does for a living you see her passion for what she does. When visiting Takaezu’s home, you see how much her personal and private life relate to each other. \nThis is pretty interesting to me. I would love it if you walked into my bedroom and saw how passionate I was about doing ceramics.\n
  • For the first part of my application i worked with Mrs. Burns and helped with Empty Bowl Project. What i did to make this event successful was make bowls, and help prepare the food. All of the bowls that I made for this event were purchased. The money that was raised for this event went to people who suffer from starvation. There was so many people there purchasing bowls and just being apart of it. Working with the people who helped make this possible was very nice and we all contributed so much to this event. (have to get pictures from mrs.burns)\n
