Yesterday I met Jane Weibel. Her major is Ceramics. She has one more year to graduate from CSULB. Her favorite artist is Jessica Stockholder. She has been doing ceramics for two years.
The materials she used to make her artwork are ceramic, fiber and rope. Her ceramic pieces took 2 months to make. Then 36 hours to install her artwork in the gallery. Her Instagram is Janemargarette.
Jane Weibel’s artwork represents her childhood memories and the innocence of it. She had a few pictures in the gallery of her as a kid. She was with her family on a sled in the winter. Her artwork had bright colors and children’s clothing. There were swings and mugs with teddy bears. Jane wants the audience to contemplate their childhood and think about who they are. To reflect on their memories and cherish them.
When I was looking at Jane Weibel’s creations, it made me feel like I was in a jungle gym. It made me think about when I was in Elementary School. Recess was my favorite time of the day. The ceramic swings reminded me of how much I enjoyed getting on the swings at the park with my family. I still love going on the swings but I don’t go to the park as much. It made me miss my childhood because life was simple. It was just about going outside to play. My favorite pieces were the kid’s clothing hanging on the ceramic hangers and the mugs with teddy bears.
