ARTT 051. Sculpture II - Sculpting Everyday Things


Covering a broad range of contemporary sculptural concepts and techniques as they apply to the design and construction of the most common of functional objects - chairs, tables, lamps and other smaller functional forms. Using found objects and the technique assemblage, students will deconstruct the objects, (conceptually and literally), toward the creation of a thematically related series of three functional forms. Several different mediums will be explored, including clay and epoxy modeling, plaster casting, woodworking, fabric work, and the overall assemblage of found materials for surface treatment.
