  • Sutton, Glen Michael (2021-05)
    Non-representational painting takes its cues and draws inspiration from the ephemeral and spiritual realms. And while this is essentially true, the physical world exists all around us. Its influences are relentless. Both ...
  • Smith, Erin (2021-05)
    As the physical and digital worlds increasingly intertwine, through clay and other mediums, I explore the transformations that occur between the two. Technologies such as scanning and 3D printing find their way into my ...
  • Sowinski, Peter J. (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Inamori School of Engineering., 2016-09)
    Nickel-based anodes are the most commonly used anodes for solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC). Unfortunately, with nickel based anodes, internal reforming of hydrocarbon fuels is often accompanied by carbon deposition, which ...
  • Tsang, Sami (2021-05)
    I was born in Canada, and grew up in Hong Kong. As the youngest female child of a conservative Chinese family, my voice was not welcomed. The ability to speak faded away. At age12, I moved back to Canada, where a series ...
  • Caspi, Uriel H. (2021-05)
    This is an invitation to explore the unknown territory of "DAR" -a visionary space that encapsulates the fundamental conceptions of “space”, “time” and “matter” through the eyes of the artist. Visually inspired by archeological ...
  • Chénard, Marianne (2021-05)
    Ceramic embodies water, earth, fire, and air in each of its transforming stages. I explore these aspects separately, giving them time and space to act; to later observe the relations which manifests between elements. I use ...
  • Solarium 
    Donofrio, Justin (2021-05)
    The original purpose of a ‘Solarium’ (or sunroom) is to gather as much light as possible, allowing for an outdoor feel within an interior space. The exhibition revolves around the radiant contrasts of light and shadow at ...
  • Easton, Lukas (2021-05)
    Through hand built sculptures of trees and rocks as well as life casts of roadkill animals, and video performance, I engage with our collective entanglement to contemplate human behavior. Narrative is built as I place ...
  • Sunder 
    Fahley, Shauna (2021-05)
    The horse and the brick were both fundamental in the development of civilization. My work embodies the intersection of the two, compounding material and subject. It is not my goal to illustrate the romantic or heroic image ...
  • Green, Josh (2021-05)
    I believe that the conflicts which are happening within me, in my search for meaning, are a reflection of what is happening in our culture on a larger scale. I bounce between the bleakness of science and its implicit ...
  • Long-Donoho, Misty (2021-05)
    Through the investigation of my life I have discovered central practices that contribute to my flourishing wellbeing, or what I now call Full Sparkle. The practices of Full Sparkle are connection with community, liberating ...
  • Wilcox, Kimberly (2021-05)
    Traumatic events and hereditary elements play a role in how our identity and body take shape but, are these factors also inescapable: is our parents' history a prophecy of what will also limit us? I am interested in how ...
  • Hyde, Rooke (2021-05)
    Society has built an environment that erases and deforms queer bodies; because of this, as a young adult I struggled to see how my body and identity could exist in the world. My practice, in turn, explores this, and uses ...
  • Wu, Yiquan; Guan, Fang; Milisavljevic, Iva; Cheng, Xin; Huang, Shifeng (Wiley, 2021-03)
    Spinel-structured NiMn2O4 ceramics, with different valence Ni sources, were originally prepared using Ni2O3 and NiO as raw materials, and the effects of different valence Ni sources on their electrical properties were first ...
  • Chon, Sanggu Simon (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Inamori School of Engineering., 2017-04)
    Substitution of TiO2 for network modifiers (Na2O and CaO) within a bioactive glass series was investigated to fabricate next generation bioactive glass derived scaffolds with amorphous structure and improved mechanical ...
  • Metz, Peter C. (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Inamori School of Engineering., 2017-04)
    Two dimensional materials are of increasing interest as building blocks for functional coatings, catalysts, and electrochemical devices. While increasingly sophisticated processing routes have been designed to obtain ...
  • Liu, Yin (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Inamori School of Engineering., 2017-05)
    The aim of this work is to fabricate a p-type CuAlO2 conducting oxide via electrospinning process and to develop a new photoluminescence (PL) functionality by introducing trivalent dopants. The proposed trivalent doping ...
  • Itzhakov, Ariel A. (Alfred University. Inamori School of Engineering., 2017-09)
    The main goal for this thesis project is to develop a 3-D image scanner that will be used as part of a larger effort in robotics and obstacle detection and avoidance. The scanner developed will be added to another robotics ...
  • Gubb, Tyler A. (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Inamori School of Engineering., 2016-09)
    Nanosheets are a class of materials defined by extreme anisotropy, typically with widths and thicknesses on the order of micrometers and nanometers, respectively. These materials are often synthesized from a bulk ceramic ...
