🧐If you’ve ever wondered what 119 tiny little wheel-thrown and hand-built pots look like, wonder no more! This was my final project for ceramics class. I explored time, liminality and borders with tiny greenware pots. It’s on my mind a lot lately with our upcoming move. Saying goodbye to my COD studio friends and professors was hard, but there are exciting new opportunities (ceramics and otherwise) ahead in Cincinnati. Thanks for everything, COD! I’ll miss you. #artschoolsteph#codceramics

My semester is over and now comes the scary life of creating a home studio. Saving LOTS of money for a wedding and a wheel/kiln. It’s going to be a tough journey but I’ll get there! I’m thankful for all the things I’ve learned in these classes and that I’m even more inspired to keep making and creating!
I was able to paint over the shadow and redo it with an oil glaze to create more transparency. I didn’t intend for my face to look quite so scary, but there it is. This is not quite what I envisioned, but it’s time to let the paint dry and go take my nutrition final. #artstudent#oilpaintingclass
I haven’t told many people about this but this semester was really big for me. Last year I got really sick and had to drop out and take Cs in all my classes. I spend all summer trying to get back to my normal self. This year I came back to school with the “%100 refund drop date” circled on my calendar. But as I went to class every week I eventually forgot that I was even considering not going to school this semester. I’m back on adhd medication and I created something that’s been inside me for years. I’m really proud of myself for the first time in a long time and I’m excited for future opportunities that #ccs will inevitably send me way.
Take care of yourself artists, because if you don’t, your creativity will deteriorate. •

Thank you to family, friends, faculty and professors that have endlessly supported me throughout my academic career ♥️
Here is my cover for Goodnight Mister Tom which I will be submitting to the Penguin Student Design awards! I wanted to capture the childish playfulness of image making as well as translate the contrast between the London Blitz and the countryside, the two locations where this story takes place.
Studio: Design Studio 3
Favorite artist: Peter Saville
Favorite thing about being a design major at tn tech:
I love the small classes. I feel like I have had a better education because of it. Every class I have the opportunity to learn and grow through critiques, demonstrations, and studio time. I love the entire arts staff at Tennessee Tech and I am forever thankful for them and the care they have put into helping me become the best designer I can be. If I could turn back time and make the decision on where to attend college for graphic design I would pick Tennessee Tech every time.
