While i’m in Sculpture making mode i’m going to be at ‘Gwaith powdwr’ this weekend, an arts and nature festival in an old disused explosives factory that is now a nature reserve.
I am going to be collaborating on a sculpture/installation piece in the landscape with rachel rosen and possibly have some sort of interactive workshop.
they also started branching out from making flowers and made butterflys and bee’s and other things…
there is lots of fantastic detail in the flowers where they’ve used beads, sequins and wire.
Also lots of copper that i think looks great, they really shimmer in the sunlight, and are going to tie in nicely with my copper sculpture whens it’s done.
the flowers turned out great- everyone made little parts of each flower and then we put the bits together to make layers in the flowers. i think they look really pretty, unfortunately they’re a bit heavy for the rods we had to make them stand up so we need to scrounge some tubing from somewhere to strengthen the stems.
lots of fun tho and the kids really got into making them.
some detail- the spines are going to make the back and wings look more dragon like i think, the tail worked well. the main thing is going to be the head that we didn’t have time to finish. it will evolve over time though which i think is part of the fun of it.
