The furniture making course, ART 4733, taught by Associate Professor and Sculpture Coordinator Critz Campbell had another succesful semester.
Throughout the course, students worked on sketching, mocking up, drafting, prototyping and fabricating chair designs.
According to Campbell, most students employed a common curved element in their back and seat. The curved wood is maple skateboard decking material, and the curve is created by laminating seven layers of the decking material together.
The curved elements were then vacuum-formed on a mold made in the class.
Students in the course this semester included: Darren Cheairs Izzy Cottrell Mikayla Evans Cecillia Lemus Chauncey Mangum Alison Meeler Josh Meyer Alliegh Moffett Ryne Riebock Matthew Rogers Kenan Simpkins Shaquita Woodson

For their final project, students in Brittany Spencer's Design I class completed a community installation at Sudduth Elementary School in Starkville.
Earlier in the semester, a committee at the elementary school chose two quotes for students to base designs on: "Plant Kindness, Grow Love" and "Throw Kindness Around Like Confetti."
Each of Spencer's students proposed three designs based on the two quotes. Those proposed designs were eventually narrowed down by a vote to the top three designs for each quote, and the Sudduth committee chose the final designs.
The MSU students then cut out these designs by hand on vinyl and decorated the school's hall windows.
Students who were a part of the installation include: Ashtyn Carpenter Caroline Fitzwater Tess Frazier Karleigh Harfst Megan Henry Hayden Hunt Haley Lawrence Eric Lindsey Savanah Martinez Meghan Norman (her design was chosen for the theme "Plant Kindness, Grow Love") Elise Sears Melissa Sones(her design was chosen for the theme "Throw Kindness Around Like Confetti") Mary Katherine Swindoll Anna Terry Deremy Triplett
See the story spotlighted on MSU's website!
This is the second community installation done by Spencer's Design I students. Read more about the previous installation in Howell Building.
