Antonio's Portfolio 2016-2017

I chose to take advanced art to work with clay. I love working with my hands. I've done carpentry and the satisfaction of making things with my hands is something I enjoy. I knew I'd like making clay and I like Mrs. Galyk as a teacher so I chose a class with her.

I'm most proud of my ceramics. I'm not they greatest at drawing or painting so my clay work comes out best. I also enjoy using my hands to craft so it brings enjoyment too.

I wish I would have worked more on my self portrait. I didn't enjoy it a whole lot and wasn't the best but I think it could have turned out good. What I got done looked good and I would love to see what a finished project would look like.

My goal for the second semester is to make bigger clay structures such as vases and large mugs. I will do this by working my spinning skills little by little and working with more clay.

Artistic behavior #1: Persistence , it took me multiple tries to even make a bowl on the wheel. I had to throw and throw to be able to make bigger and better pieces also.

Artistic behavior #2: Observe, before I started throwing I watched Mrs. Galyk and other students work. I have also looked at many many pottery video and post for ideas and tips to accelerate my skills.

I set a goal to make a mug and I did it. As shown above, I also improved my glazing skills some. Now on to my next goal. I want to make a vase, one that I can give to my girlfriend.

Artistic behavior: Reflect

Looking back on what I did and did not do with my clay work I can see my flaws. I think sometimes I bring the walls up too fast causing them to end up uneven. Also on my cup I took too long to cut it off the plate so when I did do it. It was challenging, with the end result being I cut into the bottom a little.
