Subject : Art & Design
Topic : Natural world, Sculpture
Keywords : 3d, 3 dimensional, Wood, Welsh artists
Notes : Research the work of David Nash and other sculptors inspired by the natural world. Gather natural materials (leaves, small branches, pebbles, shells etc.) and make transient sculptures / arrangements. Freeze largish blocks of ice with leaves etc frozen into them and let them melt watching their form change over time making sketches at certain intervals. Make very simple 3D shapes from scrunched-up newspaper roughly held together with masking tape, paint plainly and experiment with their arrangement in relation to each other. Explore with sheet cardboard slotting unusual shapes together to create abstract sculptural forms.
