Hana is graduating from Edgewood Jr. Sr. High School on Merritt Island. She plans to attend Pomona College in Claremont, California in the fall. As an Advanced Placement Art student, she created a portfolio of work based on the events of 2020. We were deeply impressed with her creativity and thoughtfulness. Congratulations, Hana!

"Prom 2020" This is a prom dress made from face masks. It represents the reality of special events in 2020 and that sometimes something negative can be made into something beautiful.
"The Wrecking Ball" This is a 14x14 clay sculpture of the Covid Vaccine made to look like the monster it was in 2020, with a chain added to symbolize the wrecking ball effect it had on everyone's lives.
"Murder Hornets" This is a sculpture of a murder hornet attacking the hives of honeybees. The bee is made from a book about murder hornets, and the wings are plastic colored with a mix of mod podge and honey.
"Picking up the Pieces" This is done in the Kintsugi method I learned in a study abroad in Japan. The Japanese use this method to piece broken things back together with gold powder and resin to make them more beautiful than before. I put a broken globe back together and placed it in a mold of my hands to represent a better world within reach post Covid.
"Empty Bowls" This is a picture of some of the many bowls I made for my senior project which was an event to help feed the hungry.
