This is the armiture for my sculpture. It's a figure in a hoop - circus performance style.
So.... the idea is to then add chicken wire, plaster and material - not necessarily in that order - to produce a sculpture.
I formed and welded the figure but the hoop was by the technician. He did it so fast, very knowledgeable.
I quite like it as it is... the stick figure representing the human form is an easily recognisable image from childhood. I'd like to try and keep the simple lines but not entirely sure how it will turn out.
The photograph I have has echoes of art deco and I think I'll aim to make it a little like that.
I wonder what it will turn out like..
