I have been posting a lot of photos of ceramics, sculpture and more projects from this past semester, all of which are now up in my portfolio.
This semester was a tough one, where I was transitioning from project-based learning to self-directed studio work. I also had some personal hardships that presented themselves in my life, making it harder to complete school assignments for a number of weeks.
But over all things have gotten much better and I look forward to the new year!
This past semester I sold my work at ACAD's Show and Sale, where I sold 15/20 pieces so THANK YOU for your support and patronage! I had a great time volunteering for the show and it was nice to see so many people attending from outside the school.
I was approached by the Edmonton Potterwatch about a charity silent auction, and they asked If I could make a few Harry Potter props to donate. Harry potter, charity: that is my jam. So I said yes and made the Elder Wand complete with a custom box and certificate, in addition I made a Deathly Hallows Necklace.
I was then approached by an aquaintence who wanted their own replica wand, which I made and sold to him.
If you are interested in buying any replica wand, please fill out a Commissions Form. Standard price is $120.
Recently, I was made aware that I have received the llingworth Kerr Bursary from ACAD, which is a huge honor and financial blessing. In addition, I have been accepted into the AIR program which is an initiative towards Mental Health awareness at my school, which provides me with $500 to make a work of art that focuses on a mental illness of my choosing. I have decided to make ceramic armor to represent the battle one experiences between illness and the self when one has anxiety and/or depression. this project is deeply personal to me and I am excited to get to work on it.
