Sacred lotus seedpod, clay sculpture
Here are my excuses for not blogging as often as usual: I've been taking art classes! This clay sculpture is one of my first projects. It's a dried seedpod of the sacred lotus.
The students had to choose a three-dimensional object and mimic it in a clay sculpture, using a slab of clay of about 3 kg (6.7 lb) in weight. The sculpture must then be painted, to look as though it was made of another material. I tried to paint it marble, but didn't seem to succeed :(
The final assignment was to create a similar sculpture using a different material. I've chosen styrofoam for this one.
Well, it's hard to explain. I think you should take some sculpture classes to start with, just like I did before creating this.
