1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Encephalon on: February 05, 2008 03:56:37 PM
At the beginning of last year i did a course at CIT, and as a part of it i had to create a self directed installation piece. The piece i created is called encephalon, and in a nut shell it was supposed to describe that balance must be sought between what is human/fantasy/imagined/to do with escapism and the mind and nature and all things external. Looking back i think it's fairly jeuvenile, and i had to rush a fair amount of it but the peices in themselves i dont mind.

I absolutely love the funny little caterpiller in the labyrinth, that and i love insects in general and i decided to try my hand at sculpting him. He didn't turn out quite as i would have liked, especially the eyes but i'll keep that in mind for next time ^_^. He's sculpey and mix media.

I was dumb, it's solid, i actually had to sand it back for it to fit properly on the mask so maybe it wasn't so bad but i did waste clay a bit.

Whee, those are cute! and awesome compared the disaster that was my first polymer experience (i was twelve and didn't know the difference between farenheit and celsius, lots of noxious gasses). Did you follow one of the tutorials on dev-art? Smiley
10  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Horse mask on: December 09, 2007 06:31:21 PM

Earlier this year i was at CIT completing my certificate three in visual arts and contemporary craft, and as my final project i was doing a piece called encephalon, which was based around living in ones imagination and the ramifications of that.

This piece actually ended up as process work as i changed the idea slightly, but i still really like it. Sculpting the horse took FOREVER but i loved how it came out!!! I painted it and added string for the mane, it has an undercoat of that reddy brown colour and i used a dark brown black with a dry brush over the top to capture the details.
 The mask is also handmade, basically i created a face in normal ceramic clay and papermache'd over it first with newspaper and then with tissue paper (it sounds easier then it was).
