BFA Tuesday… on Wednesday will be interrupted this week for this very special announcement :
This Friday night my fellow BFA brothers, Carleton Haack, Charles Greenberg, Jarrod Goldman and I will be showing work at Vinyl Music Hall downtown for Gallery night! If you’re in town and down there please stop by to have a look and say hello. These gentlemen are very talented, you shouldn’t want to miss it.

BFA Tuesday : a look into the life of an art student pursuing a BFA at the University of West Florida. Namely, this artist. //

Things are getting rolling for this Spring semester. Have already spent many a hour in the library and have homework/projects piling up. We’re off folks!

So since I don’t have anything new to show you yet here is a Highlight Reel from last semester. Enjoy!

BFA Update : Since we last spoke…

My efforts to update my journey kept quite strong last semester, right up until the last few weeks came upon us. In the process of finishing out above water, it was inevitably my blog which was one of the first things to go. It was an act of lightening the load in order that the ship might not sink. But finish we did, and from the storm we prevailed. Floating in a sort of peaceful daze. The vessel has since been drifting along through the holidays, until today. Yes today the sails are hoisted yet again, in preparation for a new adventure, the new semester as a fulltime Bachelors of Fine Art student at the University of West Florida.  (Que Pirates of the Caribbean soundtrack!)

Course Schedule Spring 2012 -

Art after 1950

Drawing III

Sculptural Ceramics

History of Film and Exposure

C&C Router

Due to this only being the first week of class, thus no projects being due, next week will be an update showing all the completed pieces (worth looking at) from last semester. Feels good to be back! Happy Spring!

One bite of the fruit, knowledge of good and evil. Two bites, eternal life.

And John the baptist came out of the womb talking.

The Bible is full of wonderment…

BFA Tuesday : a look into the life of an art student pursuing a BFA at the University of West Florida. Namely, this artist. //

In light of the last post regarding my proposal to speak at the NCECA, I will dedicate this BFA update to ceramics.

Assignment : Choose an animal from a specific ecosystem and create a Rhyton form with said animal incorporated into it. 

You might be asking what a rhyton form is, as did I when we first received the assignment. Well, a rhyton form is a type of drinking vessel that sits on its lip. They tend to curve similarly to horn shapes. The idea was that one could not put down their drink until they were finished because the liquid would spill out, due to the rhytons shape. Seems like an ancient drinking game if you ask me. 

This project followed our PreColumbian sculptures in the realm of handbuilding. Our parameters were to use coil-building…

I chose a hare and/or jackrabbit.

I created a stand for it to stand upright on (those front legs).

I’m happy with the way it turned out. The kiln ended up getting a little too hot and causing a few interesting idiosyncrasies such as the gloss finish (was supposed to be a matte glaze) and some dripping of the underglaze colors. 

Pray all is well,

Filipe
