Been busy- spaceships, etc.

Well, its been quite a while since I've written anything. I started this blog to document my creative journey as I tried different mediums and I've been up to quite a lot actually- ironically very little of my projects have made it onto this blog. Hmmmmmm.....

 There is an excellent community college close by - well I don't know about the whole college, but the art department is fantastic! - and in the past I have taken some metalsmithing and film classes there. Last fall semester I took an Introduction to Sculpture class- my first official 'Fine Art' class- a whole semester of sculpture! We made three pieces-  one using cast elements, one that incorporated metal and one made of wood. This sculpture is a spaceship.  I don't particularly like the photos I have so I'm just going to post some bits and pieces- close ups of some of the what I can only refer to as the hull? And inner workings. And hopefully will be back sooner rather than later with some pictures of the whole piece.





And one of the frame- shaped some wire and soldered the joints for stability- here I have one of my wire mesh panels secured.


If anyone but me reads my blog- thank you very much for stopping by!

    1. Hello there Seth! I truly didn't realize anyone would see this post, especially as I haven't written for a year (!!!), and I appreciate the comment very much. I'll be sure to post better pictures soon.
