Sumaira Trivedi – The Melting Ice

Artist: Sumaira Trivedi
Title: The Melting Ice
Media: Clay
Grade: 10th grade
School: Bentley Upper School
Teacher: Michelle Cho

Climate change is one of the biggest issues the world faces right now, and I felt like I should make an art piece about the effect it has on the environment. One side shows a mother bear watching her cub struggle to climb a piece of ice that is floating away, and the other side shows water flooding into a residential area, to show that what happens in the wilderness can also affect us. I made this piece out of clay, with glaze added on top for color. The pieces of ice, the bears, houses, trees, and flowing water were created separately and attached on later.
