MICA Competitive Scholarship Portfolio 2016

  • Custom Ride. Maple, Walnut, Mahogany
    This fully functional longboard/skatboard highlights the beauty in the construction and materials used to make a skateboard or longboard.
  • Valuable. Walnut, 32 of my most valued valuless items.
    Sealed inside this box are items that have alot of meaning and sentiment to me that have almost no monitary value. My goal is to be able to impose the value that I have placed on the objects onto others by keeping the items hidden inside of a sealed case.  
  • Mixer Machene. Ceramic. 11.5" diameter x 6.5" depth

    This is a representation of my general direction, thought process, emotions, and experence in life at the time that the piece was created.
