This isn't part of January's theme, but my teacher wanted us to do "clockworks". This sculpture is my body that was wrapped in packaging tape and then decorated with colorful duct tape, cardboard, fishing line, and paper. I am actually glas it looks so well, because i made it within a night and decorated it within a few days. Hopefully you guys li…READ MORE
Since I am mostly working air dry clay and some polymer I am interested in getting a kiln, however I have no idea what to look for, there are so many variations. What would be a good start for a small area? I have never done any ceramics, I understand that that may require a different set up!! Not sureREAD MORE
This was my first attempt. She has a wire frame that is wrapped with material soaked in fabric hardener.(Paverpol) She sits on a wooden post. I followed a pattern for her. but all my later works are done free hand cheers SheilaREAD MORE
Mostly I like odd things, these I call Alien Trees, all made with air dry clay and painted, only drawback is they are very fragile and chip easily. any ideas on how to strengthen or perhaps a different medium. I would eventually like to get a kiln, but knowledge in that area is lacking.READ MORE
This could be a fun idea for a Sculpture Class... Get all the students to work together to create an anamorphic installation that fills a whole room, similar to the work of Bernard Pras, which you can see here: http://creativegreed.com/bernard-pras-anamorphic-painting.htmlHe uses items like clothing, driftwood and other objects and arranges them strategically around a room so that when you look at the installation from…READ MORE

From now on I shall be posting more and more Works In Progress, as WIPs could be of interest to other sculptors too. Finished artworks can be seen at my own site http://www.pulpart.net. I love your comments and likes though, but the Sculpture group is in my opinion the place to help each other with all acpects of the creative process. Items of general interest could for instance be how to do mold making if you need multiples (I include a photo of salted…READ MORE
Wouldn't it be neat to use a pen to draw in the air and create a 3D sculpture? It's possible! A company called WobbleWorks has created "the world's first 3D printing pen". You can read an overview here in this CNN article: http://whatsnext.blogs.cnn.com/2013/02/21/a-3-d-pen-that-lets-you-draw-objects-in-the-air/WobbleWorks launched a …READ MORE
