Zaina Mosalam – Spiral Scales

Artist: Zaina Mosalam
Title: Spiral Scales
Media: Clay
Grade: 12th grade
School: Bentley Upper School
Teacher: Michelle Cho

The artwork is a fish surrounded by waves (made from cone shapes). The fish is also made out of various sized cones with scales made out of spirals and carvings in the fins. The intention was to take basic structures such as cones and spirals and find a way to combine them in order to create something new and something that transformed the original shapes used.
