I make things sometimes

Ask me anything   Hi! I'm Jo Panke, 33% done with my senior year of college, a ceramics major and general dabbler. I make things and sometimes I post about them here. Other posts include inspiration, artist crushes, rants, raves and rambles about art school, and general information I think others should know.

Well known and respected ceramic artist, Christa Assad, needs our help. A recent fire left her with a broken back, homeless and unable to work for a minimum of three months.
Currently there is a raffle being held with a number of amazing ceramics works by different artists to help.

YOU GUYS!!!!

This semester has been busy busy busy, which is why I have been neglecting to update this blog as much as I’d like.

Cool stuff:
I’m taking a wood design class and its very difficult but I enjoy it. My first project is almost done and my second is due soon so there will be photos.

Thesis crawls on. I’ll continue to share when I’ve updated my official thesis blog.

Here’s a 3D printed model I made last semester with the help of 123D Catch from Autodesk, Netfab, and my professor, who printed it.

I’m going to NCECA in a few days! Hurray!

Friendly reminder to current & incoming college students:
It’s around that time of year where we have to submit our tax and income information for college, assuming you qualify for federal aid. When you are filling out your FAFSA application, make sure you choose the one with the web address of https://fafsa.ed.gov
It may seem pretty obvious, but when I was an RA, I’ve had a surprising amount of residents who had no idea which one to choose, and got caught up in things like:
being charged to file (FAFSA is a free application and the government WILL NEVER CHARGE YOU)
having sensitive information willingly taken (FAFSA is done online through a secure server on a .gov website, which for all intents and purposes is safe), and…
…Because it was filed in the wrong place, the college never receives your information. Students think that everything is done, and wind up with no financial aid for the coming school year because they didn’t bother to check. This results in a lot of heartbreak and tears when you’re scrambling to get enrolled!
So please please PLEASE pay attention when you’re applying for aid. Don’t get scammed, and don’t get screwed out of help, okay?
And as another quick tip: make sure you have this year’s tax information handy (and your parents, if you’re a dependent) to make the process easier. Even if you think you or your folks make too much, apply anyway! Sometimes you could qualify for certain grants and scholarships through your school - but they need your FAFSA info!
This has been a friendly reminder. Good luck! ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

My latest blog post for thesis, regarding artists whose work is similar to what I hope to achieve, and work I’ve done previously that is in the same vein.
