Complex armor projects

The capstone project to this semester's graduate-level craft class, Masks & Armor, is the creation of a complex piece of armor. The students propose projects based upon various factors--what their concentration is in school, what media they might want to explore more fully, an area of historical or cultural interest, etc. Here are the results of this semester's final presentations:

Quilted body armor for a female fighter, by first year grad Cami Huebert

 Couture-inspired banded leather piece by first year grad Jane Reichard

"Brass" breastplate (made of microcell foam) by second year grad Sam Reckford

Detail shot of tooled/dyed leather body armor by second year grad Danielle Soldat, after a Chinese artifact in the collection of the Met

Such a good semester, such excellent work!
