This week I had the Pleasure of meeting Krystal Ramirez at her metalworks Exhibit In the Dr. Maxine Merlino Gallery. Krystal Is a student at California State University of Long Beach. Krystal is a 3D Media Metals major. When Krystal isn’t at school creating her art she is spending her free time with her family. Her hobby is to go thrifting and collecting. Krystal has always been interested in art from a young age. When she first entered school she was pursuing a child development major but then switched to her 3D Media Metals major. When she is done with school she would like to continue making pieces while building her brand. She would eventually like to use her talents to create kitchenware.
Krystal Ramirez presented her Metal Smithing potteries and jewelry at the art sale in the Dr. Maxine Merlino gallery presented by her club The CSULB Metal arts Guild. The art sale is made up of different pieces from the club’s alumni and current students the profits are collected to support the club.
Krystal Ramirez’s Metal Smithing Pottery is a copper metal flowering pot. The pots are very pleasing as they have a nice shine to them and are crafted very nicely. Each pot is holding a cactus. each pot hold’s Krystal’s business card. Her business card features a logo that Krystal designed herself.
I enjoyed Krystal’s Pottery because it was simplistic and refined. I also like the cacti she picked. I liked her pottery I only wish that I could have seen the other 3 that she had already sold.
