This week I’ve mainly been working on my sculptural piece, I’ve been toying with different ways to create the “leaves” of this tree. At first I thought I’d make them using this shape
however, now I’m leaning towards make more lateral (?) forms and utilizing the negative space to shape my form. I just didn’t like how they looked, I had some failures in that form.
I’ll be stacking these shapes on one another to create my form. I am just not sure how and also I don’t know how I’ll be attaching them onto my tree… also this is how the tree is coming along
Looking back at the form, if I could I would have shaped it differently but it’ll be okay for now. I’m currently working on the roots, I just have to wait for them to dry a little more. I’ve also begun to think of my process as more of a sculptural collage, with all the ideas that I have in my head. I’m also beginning to work on a second sculpture which is this one
But I will be having more progress of that one in the next coming week.
