ITEM #107

Sculpture with Bowl by Kim Guthrie -

17"w x 18"h

Technique: Paper Mache - Resin

Studio/Business: Kim Guthrie Art     Website: kimguthrieart.com

Kim enjoys the opportunity to stretch her imagination using a variety of papers and recycled mediums to create whimsical sculptures.

"This years submission to Empty Bowls is a personal and timely reflection of cultural relevance. Hailing from California, and often called a "tree hugger", the little girl in my sculpture could easily reflect the "me" of my youth. As a planet we create 300 billion tons of plastic waste annually.Laws have been passed recently banning the use of plastic straws. My sculpture using over 100 straws and recycled materials is my intent to educate or at the very least bring awareness to the need for moderation. "Tree Hugger" is a 3 piece sculpture and is lightweight and transports easily. The bowl is enveloped with a hard resin like substance and is not recommended for food. It's many uses could be a pencil bowl, candy dish, business cards, office supplies and more."

Rick McDaniel, MISD Superintendent -

12"w x 4.75"h

Technique: Wheel Thrown

Rick created his bowl with the assistance of Steve Macias at the SPARC Pottery Studio.

Dr. Rick McDaniel was a 20 year veteran of public education when he came to McKinney ISD in 2006 to serve as principal of the newly constructed McKinney Boyd High School, and he approached the job with an emphasis on promoting high academic standards and cultivating a strong school culture that would foster learning and a sense of safety for every student.

He was responsible for staffing and opening McKinney Boyd, and much of that school’s noteworthy success across its broad spectrum of academics, fine arts and athletics programs can be traced to his leadership. During his eight years as principal of McKinney Boyd, the school’s TAKS scores, ACT and SAT scores, completion rate and, most recently, STAAR scores have been among the best in the District. The sea of banners that hangs proudly above the expansive student cafeteria testify not only to the success of McKinney Boyd in academic, athletic and fine arts competition but also to the great sense of school pride that Dr. McDaniel helped establish.
