Before leaving to Kansas City, I wasn’t sure I wanted to pursue a graduate program or even ceramics as a medium anymore. But upon talking the representatives of several fine organizations and institutions, I became filled with this need to push myself further with my explorations. Specifically looking at the uses of mixed media within clay, such as acrylic paint, fiber, and wire. I found that by using a multitude of types of media, I am able to achieve the aesthetic goals I am hunting for within my work. The pictures I selected are from the Belger Crane yard Studio exhibition, which features works that pushed mixed media within the realm of clay work.
