So last semester I took a Sculpture Class and I LOVED it! I think it was my favorite class so far in my College Career. That is really saying something since I have taken Bowling, and Billards, among other things. Well I loved the class so much, that I thought I would share some of my projects here. Plus I don't have anything else to post right now and I need to do some kind of update.
This was my first project. We started with a general craft, mine was weaving. Then we had to turn it into a piece of art. So I weaved a wedding dress with a suit. We had to name this one so here is "Blessed Union".
This one we worked in pairs and we had to make 2 chairs that complemented each other.
This thing was sturdy too, it could hold like 6 people.
The first part of this project was to take a 2x4 and use the whole thing to make a module. I had a lot of help on this one from my uncle. I was quite scared of all the wood working equipment, but thanks to Uncle Bill, I am now well versed in the ways of the wood shop.
Next step was to replicate it using a different material. I used taped together national geographic magazines.
We had to make 6 total. So I did 4 out of wood, 1 out of cardboard, 1 magazines.
For this project we had to make a gift for someone in our class, and the only stipulation was that we couldn't spend money. So I used some old branches from the wood stack out back and made this little thing. I was excited about this one, because it came out exactly how I pictured it in my head. That doesn't always happen, and I also got to use my newfound table saw skills.
Last by not least, The BODY ARMOR. We had to make something out of an obsolete item. So mine is made out of shot caps. The lids from bottles of immunizations. I work at a clinic, and there are a LOT of shots given there. I have been collecting them for quite some time so I have a surplus of caps. I have used them for other projects but it seemed like perfect material for this project. I figured that vaccines are like protection, so hence the body armor.
Anyway that class was AWESOME! Next class is Drawing and that scares the crap out of me, so there may not be a post like this after that class is over.
