School is Hard!

Woah has it really been 7 months since my last post? well I've been hard at work going to school at ACAD and forgot all about my blogging life. I've recently gotten into Tumblr and might change my blog site address for more traffic...

Plaster City

Wednesday, January 30, 2013



I made a mini city out of plaster today! You can see it on display for a couple more days it RDC at the far end of the East Campus. Walking up to it from the stairs it creates a cool effect and piques curiosity! I'm happy with this mini in situ installation.

Treasures & New ideas

​Monday, December 10, 2012

   

I've recently rediscovered a large bag of maps that I'd been hoarding from the Reuse Centre. Look at what treasures I've found! An old map of the moon from 1969, the year before they officially mapped the dark side of the moon, and an old photograph from the 70's that fell out of a BC/AB/YT map. I wonder what and who is in the picture... I've deduced that it's of an old ski chalet and I've named the man in the blue parka Harry.

Can't wait to start my newest collage project.  

Last pots of the year

Sunday, December 9, 2012 

Here's a quick snapshot of the last pieces of the semester. Just waiting for these cups to be put into the wood firing. I can't wait to see them turn out, hopefully they will turn a  beautiful orange colour. Keeping my fingers crossed!
