Fall break has been a great time for me to experiment with making stuff. I built a loom earlier in the week to try my hand at weaving with plastic yarn I made from Walmart bags. This is...a slow and tedious process. But yeah, I kind of enjoy the tedium.

I came into my Senior IS with a very strong concept. I still have that concept, but as of right now I'm focusing on experimenting with a lot of different things that likely won't end up in my show. That is the beauty of an indepedent study, I have the freedom to approach it in any way I'd like. But I also continue to build up my army of undead pigeons (which I personally think are quite adorable).

Long live the pigeon.

Wood bending is a REALLY HARD process, but that (and woodworking in general) is turning out to be the most enjoyable sculpture process I've encountered so far. I have a feeling that I'm getting closer to the type of thing I really want to be doing. In the meantime, more dinosaurs of course!

This was my final sculpture for class. I don't think photos do it justice, but suffice to say that it took me an extremely long time. I have a lot of respect for birds now. It's entirely made of sticks and a small amount of fabric, nothing else holding it together and it ended up being quite sturdy! It's about 8 feet long and 2 feet high.

A couple days after I put it up I completely destroyed it and tossed the remains into the woods. That is the sad reality of sculpture sometimes, although honestly I can't say I felt sad about it. All about the process.

I'm taking the next level of sculpture in the spring, so I'm really looking forward to delving further into the medium. I even get to weld!
