Sculpture from 2006
Posted by rachelcreative on March 28, 2007
Inspired and confident from all your kind support I’d thought it might be fun to share some old work with you.
Starting with my first pieces of sculpture. Both from 2006.
Figure without smile
This was my first piece of sculpture. About 6 inches high made from paper mache pulp. Polystyrene foam used as armature (I love carving polystyrene!). The figure came from some bad emotions, head hung low and arms lifeless.
Tree of Life
Happier times! Inspired by the work I did on our wedding invitations and stationery, in turn inspired by one of Klimt’s friezes featuring tree of life and gorgeous spirals. It needs another coat of paint but as it’s been lying around for a year without getting that I thought I might as well share it as is!
Paper mache (mixture of paper strips and pulp) on wire with acrylic paint. Some polystyrene foam within the base to bulk it out.
If I get to do more paper mache sculpture I might even tell you my pulp recipe
