An interesting set of events coming up to tackle the issue of isolation in the world today:

My name is Robert and I want to make a difference. I do not want to be another person who stands by and waits for something to be done. I do not want to be another person that watches as prejudice, violence and hatred continue to effects young people who are doing nothing wrong but simply asking questions and trying to express who they truly are. I do not want to be another person that carry’s on projecting stereotypes, I do not want to be another person who stands by and does nothing and hope for change, I want to be that change.

CERAMICS 2nd Rotation

Brief: A cruet set

I chose to make small pebble like shapes with different natural textures on that make you want to pick them up and feel the different surfaces.

There was a long process called Slip Casting which means you have a mould to keep reproducuing your work.

Carving an egg shape on the lathe:

GLASS 2nd Rotation

Brief: To create a creature then abstract its form and add some kind of attachment.

I focused on natural forms like mushrooms and flowers.

My creature was the idea of nature and how it grows over our mademade creatation, feeding and trying to take back the land.

I added long rope vines to give the sense that the piece is growing, taking back the earth.
