Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

My goal is to create a series of ceramic lighting sculptures based on my current body of work. I will experiment to discover the best forms, clay body, firing techniques and wiring techniques to create lamps, sconces and pendant lights that suit the aesthetic of my sculpture while being functional and easy to use. Through creating this body of work the outcome will be a deeper understanding of using lighting in sculptures, pushing my work in a unique direction from what is being shown in the area. My evaluation plan and method to measure the outcome is to show the completed series of lighting sculptures to my mentor Robin Murphy at the Duluth Art Institute, and discuss with her the form, function and reproducibility of each one, then decide which ones would be best to go into production on and use for getting gallery representation.
