Three Dimensional Designs

Like Sculpture, 3-D was another exciting challenge. With a variety of assignments, I never found myself bored. I feel that most of my best work was created in this class.

"White Pyramid" was an idea I had for an assignment called the Paper Project. The Paper Project required students to use only one sheet of any size paper and create an object that would have no openings, plenty of volume, and an interesting shape. "White Pyramid" was created when I tried to turn a triangle into a square. The texture is white string glued to the paper to draw the viewers eye from the base (the square) to the triangle at the top.

This project based on creating a sense of line and volume with the use of reed. I decided that creating a triangle with the reed as well as holding it together with a fourth piece of reed would create the volume I desired. For a sense of line I used water color to draw the eye across the piece. Colored string matching the colors on the reed is holding the reeds together.
