FC: Jameles's Mixbook
1: Artist statement | What i think of as art is something that takes time and comes from the heart of the artist. Even if its not the best looking piece of art its still art because it came from inside a persons soul. When i was little i didn't really like art i grew to love it an care for alot when i heard about this art club after school when i was in fifth grade.So i told my mom i was going to stay after school and see what it was about and at that moment i learned that wanted to pursue the art club. We did things from painting,graphite drawings, and pottery.some of the people i have got inspiration from over the years are my previous teachers, Van Gough, matisse, and just my peers that have sparked ideas in my mind over the years.But all in all waht im trying to say is just do what you want and as long as you think its art its art because that all that matters.
2: Face jug | At first my face jug was going to be cool. But as you can see it didn't turn out that way...Gucci.but all in all i just wanted to get it done so i could get a grade rather than a zero.But we all know the kool-aid man i just made him look like he got punched in the face.But through out the project i really didn't have problems creating this piece because the basic shape and form of the it was very easy. | Buck teeth kool-aid man
3: I will always love you... | In the past people put moonshine in pottery jugs. Children had a habit of getting into everything including this moonshine. Therefore, the potters put ugly faces on the jugs in order to scare the children away from the moonshine. | History
4: Sgraffito and Mishima | Two faced | My inspiration for this piece was just my outgoing personality.As you can see by the way act in this. The name i gave this piece is two-faced because obviously it has two faces incorperated into the design. But i think the hardest part of this project was carving my design into the plate.
5: History | Sgraffito has been used in Europe since classical times, and it was common in Italy in the 16th century, and can be found in African art.Another use of sgraffito is seen in its simplified painting technique. One coat of paint is left to dry on a canvas or sheet of paper. Another coat of a different color is painted on top of the first layer. The artist then uses a palette knife or oil stick to scratch out a design, leaving behind an image in the color of the first coat of paint this can also be achieved by using oil pastels for the first layer and black ink for the top layer. Sometimes a first coat of paint is not needed, and the wet coat scraped back reveals the canvas. This can not be achieved by using the oil pastel method. This technique is often used in art classes to teach the sgraffito technique to novice art students
6: Raku | I think raku was a great exsperiance for me because it was the first had heard of or did anything like that.But as an artist i think the raku firing made me love art more because it was really fun and not as boring as some of the other firing methods.
7: History | In the 16th century, the Japanese tea master Sen Rikyu, who was involved with the construction of the Jurakudai, had a tile-maker named Chjir produce hand-molded tea bowls for use in the wabi style of tea ceremony that was Riky's ideal. The resulting tea bowls made by Chjir were initially referred to as "ima-yaki" ("contemporary ware"), and were also distinguished as Juraku-yaki, from the red clay that they employed, called Juraku clay. Hideyoshi presented Chjir's son, Jokei, with a seal bearing the Chinese character for Raku. Raku then became the name of the family that produced the wares. Both the name and the ceramic style have been passed down through the family (sometimes by adoption) to the present 15th generation (Kichizaemon). The name and the style of ware has become influential in both Japanese culture and literature.
8: Abstract Sculpture | Doing this abstraction piece helped me to understand that when your creating art it does not have to be a precise shape or object it just has to represent what you think of as art. I think my inspiration came from just seeing what type of designs my class mates did throughout the year and the types of different designs they incorperated into their designs.
9: History | Abstract art uses a visual language of form, color and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world. Western art had been, from the Renaissance up to the middle of the 19th century, underpinned by the logic of perspective and an attempt to reproduce an illusion of visible reality. The arts of cultures other than the European had become accessible and showed alternative ways of describing visual experience to the artist. By the end of the 19th century many artists felt a need to create a new kind of art which would encompass the fundamental changes taking place in technology, science and philosophy. The sources from which individual artists drew their theoretical arguments were diverse, and reflected the social and intellectual preoccupations in all areas of Western culture at that time.
10: A beautiful day.. | Portrait Bust | What gave me inspiration for this piece is my current teacher today Ms.D i did not know where she was going with this piece at first but after i had followed all her directions it all made since to me. the hardest part of constructing this piece was getting the wall to stand up on the face. This is one of the only pieces as a ceramic artist that i actually cared about this year. But all the hard work i had put into the piece was worth it because i felt a since of accomplishment.Doing this piece showed that if you put the work forth But i think this piece has shown how far i have came as an artist this year for the better.
11: Dali | Salvador Felipe Jacinto Dali i Domenech, was born on May 11, 1904, in the small agricultural town of Figueres, Spain, in the foothills of the Pyrenees. This meant that he lived only sixteen miles from the French border in the principality of Catalonia. He was the son of a prosperous notary, and spent his childhood in Figueres and at the family's summer home in the coastal fishing village of Cadaques. His first studio was built for him by his parents and was situated in Cadaques. For most of his adult life he lived in a fantastic villa in nearby Port Lligat.
12: Social Commentary | Doing this piece with other group members showed me how to work as a team and that it was not all about me and for once i was not the center of attention. But it felt good to interact with other people and get some work done for once instead of playing and goofing around .
