Title: Prehistoric Piggy Bank, Crafts
Art is determined by many things and is influenced by just as much. My dinosaur was influenced by the cultural group known as "scene." Scene is often associated with bright colors, cartoon/child like images and art and also a genre of music. I happen to listen and love all of those things. That is my main reason for choosing the bright glaze and making it a dinosaur. I brought my sketch to life by using mainly pinch and coil methods. I created two oval pinch pots for its body and created its appendages with coils. The head I then molded separately before attaching at the end. Overall, I am very pleased with how my dinosaur turned out.

Award: Excellent
