Detail Shots



In this project, we form the Metropolis by finding a building in Greenwich Village and making it through a clay. I picked Jefferson Market Library and I wanted to let it know how it is beautiful because it is not very popular now. I made the clay flat and put a brick template on the wall. Then, I drew lines and dug holes using a needle tool and a ribbon tool for other details. In general, I used my hands more than my tools to make my work. I originally wanted to simplify the building in my work, but I wanted to use the details to show the windows and spires in detail.
