paper sculpture

To create some 3d paper sculptures first we did some blind drawings of the classroom ceiling. The most interesting bits of these drawings were then used to create abstract aper forms. Some of these forms have potential in clay directly;

The idea was refined by working directly from a life model to create these little sculptures - kind of realistic, at least in theory;

Which all led on to me playing around with paper at home with the idea of creating some maquettes for future ceramic projects. I have been toying with the idea of simple boxes, cut at differing angles. It satisfies my geometric bent. Individually they are a bit dull but, as a group they do come to life and show some potential - something I was unsure about until I made these little models. Slabbed clay versions may be appearing here soon...
