FC: Art means a lot to me. i love to draw and create my own images. Art is a way that i can express myself and to show others my artistic abilities.
1: About me My name is Antonio Gutierrez, I'm 17 years old and I'm a senior at Central Cabarrus High School. i was born in Mexico and lived there for 3 years until my family decided to come to the US, and I've lived here ever since then. Art is my favorite subject in school because my passion is drawing and i alway try to do my best so i can become a better artist.
2: Face Jugs: Originally used to keep kids away from moon shine and other beverages inside these jugs. They first came out in the 19th century Can be funny or scary faces. Very fun to make!
3: My Face Jug I don't really think i took the time to show what i can really do on this project. if i were to re-do this project i would of changed a lot. i would of added wringles to give it more of a texture and made the eyes look a little more real, and overall just give it a more realistic look to it.
4: Sgraffito & Mishima | Sgraffito A technique either of wall decor, produced by applying layers of plaster tinted in contrasting colors to a moistened surface, or in ceramics, by applying to an unfired ceramic body two successive layers of contrasting slip, and then in either case scratching so as to produce an outline drawing. Found in Europe but mostly in Italy | Mishima The Mishima name may be 17th century, but the style itself goes back to Korea's Koryo Period (935-1392) when bowls decorated in this way were known as Korai-jawan or Korai tea bowls. These were inlaid with various motifs such as floral and animal depictions. A potter would incise the design in the body, fill it in with contrasting colored clay or slip and then cover it with a transparent glaze. This technique peaked in Korea in the 12th-13th-century Koryo celadons, deemed "first under heaven." It's also referred to as zogan. Another inlay style is called reverse inlay. This is where the potter cuts away the background, leaving the design in relief, then the background is brushed over with a slip and the excess is scraped away.

15: Pit Fire In the beginning clay pots and pans were used as cooking ware when they would cook they realized that fire makes clay hard so basically they created a pit, placed all the pieces in the pit and started firing, this would create burn marks on the pieces

18: Japan Raku is traditionally used in hot tea ceremony's. In the traditional Japanese process, the fired raku piece is removed from the hot kiln and is allowed to cool in the open air or in a container filled with combustible material.

23: Raku | When i completed my Raku piece i thought it looked really good. the colors looked really vibrant and i was very happy with it. After it came out of the raku process all the colors changed and it looked kind of oily i wasn't very happy with it but it was okay. also it came out with a really rough texture which i also didn't like very much, but i had fun working on this and the experience was very interesting also

28: Reflection: At first i had created a body for my bust. I thought it looked really good and i was very proud of it but when i took it home over the break to work on it; just one day before school i took it out to look at it and i saw that his head had fallen off. | i was very mad and i really could'nt fix it because i didn't have enough clay, and even if i did i could'nt fix it because i had no way to make coils so i had to settle for what i had. then after it came out of the kiln, i noticed it was missing an ear.
29: Bust | After going thought all that i really didn't want to work on it anymore. i had lost interest for it. i guess if it would of came out the way i wanted it to i would of worked on my painting a bit more and it would of came out looking a lot better.
