Week 11- Student

This week, this certain piece caught my eye. It was by Timothy Cooper, but unfortunately, he was not there to be interviewed. This piece caught my eye because as you can tell from my other posts about art, I like pieces that are small but when there are a lot of them. All of the small white plates lined up into a cross shape really intrigued me. The artist statement on the wall said that the 145 plates were all hand-thrown using stoneware clay and a satin white glazed fired to 2250 degrees Fahrenheit. I really liked the message of this, which is that multiple individuals can work together to produce a positive personal, social, and aesthetic experience. Many people working together can create something big and great.
