My final 3D Tea Party Piece. Due to time constraints I was able to make a tea pot, two cups and a bowl and some bunting. I hope to improve this installation further by creating more pieces and using a model to be at the tea party. I will be doing this in my final two weeks after half term. I plan on photographing it as a moving installation in different places…such as my garden, a park, a river, the beach etc, using the same model for each one! I’m pleased with how it turned out especially in the little time i had.

Art, Craft and Design in 3D

INTRO:   In this essay I am going to explore the differences and similarities between art, design and craft and the differences in the work/trade for artists, designers and craftspeople.  I am going to be looking at one artist, one designer and one craftsperson and all 3 work in 3D as that is what I will be looking at in this essay.

Final Works…3D Tea Party

I have just started making and planning my final sculpture piece.

I have decided to create a 3D Tea Party Installation. This will include 3D Objects you would expect at a tea party: tea pots, cups and saucers, tea spoons, all created by me, made out of papier mache, wire and other resources. I will be using a table, chair and other ornaments as well as food (edible and made by me) to decorate and fairylights and bunting (made by me). I will then photograph the installation as a tea party, with some of my friends modelling in studio spaces and in different locations.

I have already started making the teacups and teapots.

 GAVIN WORTH’S WIRE HAND SCULPTURES.

Friday May 5 @ 09:25am

MY HAND SCULPTURES SO FAR.

I have been looking at hands and how they can be made, what materials I can use and how they can be sculpted. I particularly liked a wire sculpture I saw by Gavin Worth which inspired me to do this.

One of the reasons I have been looking at hands is because as a part of this project I am making some jewellery: rings and wire bracelets. Therefore I want to makea a hand for them to be displayed on.

I have made a basic hand cast and a basic wire hand. Here is what they look like at the moment. They are a work in progress and I plan on developing them further. I am going to build up the strength of the hand cast with papier mache and decorate it. I will post pictures showing the whole process.

I have quite enjoyed making these!
