  • What direction did you take the word repetition?
    • I took a literal direction on my project. I use clay, and the idea of zen tangled to execute this.
  • Tell me about your process, from idea, sketch, beginning to finish.
    • First, I search ideas on Pinterest, and after see a really cool zen tangled tree, I decided to create a zen tangled leaf. I then sketched out the leaf design. Next, I chose to use red clay, and cut out the leaf and created different, repetitive patterns for each section of the leaf. After being bisqued, I glazed it with clear glazed, and we fired it for a last time. 
  • What is at least 1 thing you feel you did successfully and why?
    • I think I was successful in creating different patterns and executing my original idea as planned.
  • What is 1 thing you would like to change about your piece and why?
    • I wish I could make the sections of the leaf more realistic and accurate.

Marble Drop: Hannah & Kelsie's Farm

  • Who did you work with on your marble drop?
    • I worked with Kelsie on our marble drop!
  • What is your theme?
    • Our theme is farm
  • How did you come up with the theme and ideas for your piece?
    • Kelsie came up with our theme, and we brainstormed together to decide which parts of the farm would be cutest.
  • What did you find most difficult in making your piece?
    •  The most difficult thing in making the marble drop was deciding which aspects to use, and where to put them.
  • How does the marble travel?  Did you make your own tracks? If so, how? 
    • The marble falls through the top, and into the barn. Then, I rolls down the hail bails and on to the grass, zig-zag track. Last, it falls into the pig, and rolls down the field. Kelsie and I worked together to make the tracks using cardboard and hot glue.
  • If you could change anything about your piece what would it be?
    • I would create more obstacles for the marble to go through/on.
  • What are you most proud of in you piece?
    • I am most proud of our painting job, and the little picket fence.
