I enjoy ceramics because it serves as a way for me to spend my time and energy on something that will in the end will be a beautiful and meaningful piece of art to me. Ceramics has become a great break in my day to let my imagination run free, and express myself in ways that I understand. I enjoy handbuilding pieces of art in ceramics because I feel there is more control over the art that way. When working in ceramics I tend to imagine what I want my final product to look like, and as I work my pieces evolve. I was assigned a mixed media project in class, and I am really glad I was because these pieces have become some of my favorites. This project also opened up my eyes to a new way to create beautiful art while incorporating unique items.
