While doing this project I have came across things I didn't know could help me create my artwork. There are many stages to complete your work and I learned that there is a method that you can remember when you are sculpting your clay or any art work. (Score, Slip, Shape, Slab). When scoring you have to make sure that both of your surfaces are thick enough so that when it dry's it will not break, also when attaching it to one another,take a kemper or anything sharp and useful to make lines on the sides so that when you put a little bit of water it will stick much better than any other way you probably do it. I was able to know what all the tools were used for and how they help my working skills and it is very helpful for further projects.
While creating the beginning of this project I used google images and artist like 'da vinci, Pablo Picasso, Michelangelo' etc. to help me get an idea of what to do but make something I can have people look at as inspiration and creative. I planned out what my work was going to look like and what materials that are needed for it. During the planning of my artwork was difficult, I was having trouble with making the sides all equal and having the right shapes and tools to bring my art work to life or to make it interesting. It took me a total of a day and a half to figure out what shapes I wanted to use and what i wanted on my mug,
At the end of my creation I realized why i made this mug, my mug is to represent some of the things I cherish. On the front of my mug is a huge letter V which represent the first letter of my high school. On one side has a heart with the initial "HES" and it stands for my celebrity crush Harry Styles it also shows my love for him because he is so caring and sweet. On the other side has the word rs.Styles which represents my visualization as a One Direction, like any other fan we see ourselves being in our crush's or idols lives. On the back has a handle that you can see is not big enough to hold but just to be there and underneath it has the letter VMCCA which show how important this school is for me and how they help out the student get the proper education so they can graduate on time.
