James DeRosso: Monster 8all
The students learned about the artist James DeRosso, this artist first began to create his little monsters as fun little creatures meant sit on by the kiln to ward of bad luck in the firing process. DeRosso's customers began to become interested in these little creatures more than his actual serious works of art. We created pinch pots inspired by James DeRosso. The students needed to have their monster pots not only look visually appealing, but also serve as functional art as well. The students made jewelry holders, iPhone chargers, pots , etc.
