We had to recreate the shape of a vessel from the past and then do something to the surface of it to make it unique to us. I based my shape on the Greek's oinochoe. I carved a stylized hillside of southwest Wisconsin into mine. The blue for my sky didn't show up and ended up looking more like the maroon of the rest of the vessel.
We were asked to make a shrine to something. I chose my favorite architect Gerrit Rietveld. I have drawn a lot of influence in my works from Rietveld and the de stijl movement. I like the strict geometric shapes and the planes that don't quite match up in the architecture of his Schroder House.
