High School Student
“I am a high school art student from Massachusetts. Sculpting and mixed media design, particularly in ceramics, occupies most of my class and free time. I am also an intern for a local architectural firm. I love working three-dimensionally so much because I feel that it’s my way to make something real, something that fills a space and communicates with the viewer. Working three dimensionally that allows me to think about how I can create a sculpture and space that a viewer can enter and connect with.
Ceramic sculpture can be a long and sometimes unpredictable process, so it allows me a lot of time to think about my concepts, collaborate with my teachers and peers, and figure out how I can communicate my ideas in better ways. Though a lot of my time in the studio is spent alone, I’ve found the art community, (especially the ceramics community) to be extremely supportive, interesting, and constantly full of ideas.
In the future, I can’t wait to take my ideas to college, where I am majoring in architecture. Hopefully my love for structure will help me design, and maybe even build successful and sculptural buildings in the future.“
