Creating the sculpture: Part 03

The following lesson I worked on the details of the sculpture. I had some problems with engraving the wings onto the sculpture, so I decided to scrap it. Since we this was the second to last lesson we were able to work on the sculpture, I decided to make the rest of the sculpture out of cardboard and other materials, as the clay needed one week to dry.

Creating the sculpture: Part 02

In the second lesson I was able to work with the sculpture, I continued modeling the body of the owl, as I had finished the frame of the clock. I used clay to build around the frame, to make it into one sculpture altogether. By the end of the lesson, I had finished the main structure and was ready to proceed to the details.

Creating the sculpture: Part 01

The first thing I had to do when creating the sculpture was to create the background of the clock. I did this by cutting out an appropriate sized circle out of cardboard and then painting it with silver paint. Then I proceeded to create frame to insert the clock in. This was going to be the stomach of the owl. My initial thought was to add gears to the sculpture, but since the classroom lacked that component, I was not able to.

Clock design

I have now made a design of the clock I am planning to make. I will cover a clock with some kind of material, most likely clay. I will also probably include some other accessories, to make it not just look like a statue. The sculpture will be of a robotic owl.

Clock ideas

Last lesson we were introduced to out new unit, where we work with time and clocks. The assignment of this unit is to create a clock or another form of sculpture that represents time. I am thinking of designing my clock to look like an owl, because it reminds me of some characters from the video game Okami, which had a very interesting concept to it.
