inspiration & process:

a) music_________________ d) dance_________________
b) fine art________________ e) drama_________________
c) science________________ f) history_________________
(2) List your favorite two ideas and translate your favorite three into a visual representation of the piece working either abstract (simplified or distorted) or realistic (represents existing object), through metaphoric (visual comparison) or literal (actual) symbolism.
(3) Make a maquette, or small 3D model, of design.
(4) Fabricate your design into a 1+ foot non-functional sculpture representing your interdisciplinary inspiration using clay coils, molding, & slabs accompanied by mixed media materials added in after firing, glazing, &/or painting.
