Artist Krystal Ramirez is a undergrad transfer student who has now been at CSULB for two years. She is a 3D media major with metal and if that doesn’t pan out for her she would like to check on industrials for a major. Her interests are thrifting, painting, and antiquing. An interesting fact about Krystal is that she was actually inspired to do 3D art after she had took a jewelry class.
The Art pieces are made up of materials like brass, sheet, metal, Copper etc. The pieces are metal made and it was things like silver colored salt shakers, or a very sharp jagged looking gold colored necklace, and copper holders. It must be a very tricky process to be able to form art with different kinds of metals.
Krystal’s work is inspired by music so she wanted to create movement in her pieces as if they had their own flow. She also would like to be a designer for metal pieces such as silverware in the future and other lines of design. She prefers sticking to sculptural work.
I found the pieces very interesting. It must take great skill and craftsmanship to create these pieces. I have a strong respect for it and I like the creativity in the designs. My favorite piece was the gold colored necklace which reminds me of something worn in the middle ages. I do think the art pieces have their own flow and you can feel what she was trying to portray by the visual appearance of the pieces.
