This time around the class was required to re-vamp and finalize our creations and experimentations with the pliable, layered, and modular material studies. Here were my finished pieces…….(see below).
- (top left corner), This is my pliable material study of course; I finished this up with multi-colored geographical map paper, placed everything on a grid, and used nickels and quarters as my semicircle outlines, there is a diagonal- straight through the piece and various notches situated throughout; inspired by salmon leather shown at the material library class visit.
- (top right corner), Here is the modular piece; it is fairly identical as far as overall form is concerned; I kept the shape of the panels the same and used the same material; it holds together through notches; however it differs in that it is now hexagonal (extra panels) and it is canopied in left-over scraps from my layered material study.
- (bottom), Which leads me to the layered study; the concept remains the same…weaving; however this is now given some contrast with the black and white as opposed to one solid color; construction paper and card stock are used; it is sewn together instead of held together by the use of flaps, and there are geometrical strips weaved through the grid.
