Vortex-Ellen Schon

This piece has a very neat and polished texture that makes it appear to look as if it was made from wood. Based on the shape and the look of this piece, i would assume that this was made in present time. I think the piece is shaped like an actual vortex. This piece i think is highly successful. The artist did a great job in smoothing out the piece and giving it and great and intriguing form and color.

Laocoön and His Sons

This sculpture has incredible detailing in the facial features and the body features. I think this piece looks quite dated because of the cracks on the piece. The artist clearly did a great job in making this piece come to life and actually appear to look realistic. This sculpture was based off a play, that is now lost but still is a reminder and visual dedicated to the lost play and is placed in a museum in Rome. The sculpture is incredibly successful to me because of the great detail he carved into the marble.

Bubbles The Fish

I created my whistle into a fish because I thought it would be a neat idea to bring to life and give inticate colors to. When making the whistle I had a very difficult time trying to create the correct angles to make the whistle actually work. If I could change something about my fish, I would definetly plan the eyes out a little better to give them more of a cute cartoon feel.

I made this mug for my sisters graduation since she played varsity softball. One major problem I had with making this piece was trying to get the round softball shape, I had to continually beat on it with a ruler. My very pleased with this mug and my sister uses it everyday, although if I had to change something, I would change how the bat and make it more realistic by putting in more detail.
