There are 3 differences I can see between working with clay and working with wood. Firstly, on clay you can reshape it if the original was the wrong shape, but wood once it’s cut you cant “un cut” the wood. Secondly, on clay it is very easy to connect 2 pieces of clay and merge it to look like 1 piece of clay. Thirdly, however, wood you can take as long as you want when making something, but clay you need to finish your basic design before it hardens, otherwise it would be very difficult to work with.

“Conventional” Pot:

My object was a violin peg, so I made my final “pot” based after it (A violin). I am connected to it because, as someone who is passionate about playing cello, I feel that the violin body helps amplify that. If I could have made any improvements, I would have made all the sides smoother first, before it hardened, because some of the sides could be considered “rough terrain”. My Achievement I am proud of is how the shape turned out, as it looks quite similar to the body of a Violin, only smaller.

Unconventional Pot:

It is not a pot because my final product has multiple openings, not only one “main” opening, so it is more of a pencil holder than a pot.

It looks like a picture that looks like it is made of multiple people. It is blurred to show that it probably has multiple layers of photos put together. It reminds me of a young boy. It is a very simple idea, but its simplicity makes it interesting, how it is an “average” of everyone that was once in a class, if all of them were layered on top of one and made less opaque. If I were to ask the artist someething about this, I would ask this artist about how he got the idea to make the work, like what inspired him.If I were to name this, I would call it “A person, made of people”. If I couldn’t I think that maybe he was looking through old things and wanted to make something so he could remember everyone in his class, or maybe it was an experiment. The final product seems pretty successful, as it is distinguishable as a human still, but it is a combination of everyone that he scanned. The most impressive part is how it looks so realistic, and how it is such a simple idea that became a piece of art. It is a combination of all of them, so it would take less space, instead of like 50 images of separate people, and space is filling up fast, so we need to make things smaller.


Relief Sculpture

1.Relief sculpture is when part of somethings is raised, in 3D. People that make these cut out the background and it leaves the art technically “never made”. It gives the illusion that something has been raised up.


2.Low relief sculpture is when the depth is very little, like on a coin.


3.High relief sculpture is when the depth is very high like the “Gates to Hell”.


Sculpture Towers

Sand 2Water 1

Actually, we chose this tower because of function, not because of form. If you can’t see, in the middle of the clock, we put a watch, so that it could actually tell time. From that, we looked at clock towers and chose Big Ben. We made the shape after it, but the designs were are made on the fly.

As a real tower, people could use it to tell time (if they didn’t have a clock in their home). It could also be a great attraction for tourist, and help them tell time, if they happen to forget a watch. I would imagine this in London (Duh) or any developing country, where many people may not have watches or a proper way to tell time consistently.

We worked well in creating the tower in proper dimensions, and followed our “build” plan all the way through. However, we could have improved on communication, because we barely talked the whole time. We just stuck to the plan we made from the start.

How I made it: First I took 2 hard pieces of paper and 1 A3 sized regular paper.I put glue all over the back of the 2 hard paper. I folded the A3 paper in half, and glued the hard paper on about 1cm from the crease. Then, i taped the crease to help with the strength. Then i took 6 other A3 paper, and folded them in half, then clipped them on. I put 3cm marks in the crease at the middle, then i get a needle and a string and keep doing a “complicated” method then tie it so it stood. After, my book was finished.


Benefits: I can keep my plans, and my drawings in a book instead of just random pieces of paper. This helps me have a collection of things instead of just one thing.


What would I do to change it: I would either put more paper inside so ther eare more pages, so I could put more things in the book. Because when i run out of pages, I would either have to make a new book or erase things, both which are time consuming and doesn’t make the book a big collection anymore.
