More Watercolors

From class and for enjoyment.

The entrance of the CSULB Japanese Gardens at three different times of the day.

A fountain in the back of the Japanese Gardens.

The pathway and some of the plants and water in the Japanese Garden.

Fanart of Celty from Durarara! I had a lot of fun messing around with this one.
A swamp monster that was a lot of fun to paint.

Metals Jewelry and Sculpture

Here are my four projects from my Metals class I took this spring:

My first project: A bracelet from a 4"x4" piece of copper, with nothing cut out. I made a flame gauntlet piece that worked as a small sculpture standalone, and a functional bracelet when worn.

The second project was a band ring. A practice one was done in copper, and then I made it in silver. It is two pieces of silver sweat soldered together with my design cut into the top piece, and the inside of the bottom piece has 'wonderland' imprinted into it.

The third project is a pendant. I modeled it after a heart turned into a clock idea and spent a lot of time putting it together.

The final project in my class was a container. I made a little lock function on mine to keep it shut, and imprinted in 'lock and key' on the bottom.
