I’m not unbiased on the subject, but I think my sculpture is coming along nicely. I did a lot of chiseling and filing this week to add some details and more three-dimensional interest to the piece.

Week 5 mock-ups

I made these mock-ups (the black paper) as part of my homework to figure out what to do with the center of the sculpture. Actually cutting out the different shapes was more helpful than just drawing them, as Nick (the instructor) suggested. I decided to cut out half of a circle, and chisel down the other half to add some more depth to the project.


Here’s where I’m at with one side of the sculpture. It’s really starting to come to life — more next week!
