UCARE Poster session, University of Nebraska-Lincoln Research Fair, April 2016, Lincoln, NE.
The purpose of this research is to explore specific techniques and processes as employed by Eddie Dominguez through an apprenticeship in ceramic art in which I will be intimately involved in both the critical thinking and process of Professor Dominguez’ work. Topics of focus include building upon my skills of testing glazes and clays in order to discover which glaze and clay combinations cater best to the work. I also plan to investigate idea generation and art concept, an element of Eddie Dominguez’s work that is very important.
Many other vital studio practices were implemented during the apprenticeship. Skills such as applying to shows, photographing, networking, packaging, and website management. This research is very important for me to learn as an aspiring artist. Applying to shows and networking to get into galleries is a very essential part of being an artist.
