a form with clear gesture, and dynamic positive and negative space, found through carving from a 50lb plaster block. 

sketch model - modelling clay

After multiple iterations with sketch models, I decided on the form to the right.

carving process

Using chisels the general form was carved out referencing the sketch model. Then the piece was shaved down using a rasp, removing all flat areas on the form. After, it is sanded smooth. 

final piece

After sanding the piece was mounted to a wood base in a position that best displays its form. I am happy with the result, but of course it can always use more sanding!
