The first sketch is for a carved wooden frame to surround a ceramic bas relief. My intention for the piece is to portray the moment that a person realizes they are using influence to manipulate others. I will draw decorative influence from the Baroque period in the sculpting of the frame. The frame will then be painted with faux gold leaf.
The second sketch is for a simple wooden rolling pin. The handles will be engraved with imagery of a pizza and a wreath, making pizza a power-driven symbol. This rolling pin would be for possible use in performance piece about making ceramic pizza.
