Silhouetted Still Lives: Lab 1, Day 2.

After creating a 3D collage plan yesterday, we went in today with starting to form the sculptural structure, taking elements from the collage. We took inspiration from the large flower and the smaller flower. Olivia started working on recreating the larger scale flower in clay, so I took to creating the smaller flowers. I used slab building to create a hollow, 3D pot and then by hand, started to craft the flower shapes using modelling tools.

Once both our sculptural pieces were formed, we then started to discuss how to combine the two or if we wanted to create further elements of the collage – in the end, we decided on creating a coiled vine with petal leaves coming off of it, connecting the two together.
