In this particular project I believe I skipped some research phases. Though I really enjoyed the project I feel like I could have done more. It was fun for me working with such variety of materials,that’s why I also did some extra work adviced by Helen.
The clay tile was not what I was hoping before because as explained before I didn’t manage to get the image I wanted in time so it ended up being too simple for me and I believe it doesn’t show my skills completely. Next time I should really try to print the images I need for the project sooner and not 10 minutes before the workshop.
On the other hand, I was really happy with my glass tiles (The 3 pieces) because they came out of the kiln quiet similar as they were before going inside and the work itself really reflects me. A note to self would be probably:
- Managing my time better
- Focus on research
- Take responsibility if I leave things for last minute
- Learn with my experiences, with the positives and negatives.
I believe this project got me closer to my course choice since I enjoyed more than the others.
