Wire Sculpture

The objective of this project was to make a stable wire sculpture from observation. We'd choose an object, in my case a submarine, and recreate it using wire and wire hooks to make them stay together. This would improve our skills for future use, and introduce a different type of sculpting and art to our class.

We used wires to build the object, and bent hooks to make the wires stay together. That was e hardest part, because in order to bend the hooks and make them stay, we had to use loiters to make little candy canes on the end of the wire and precisely yet hard press down in order to make the wires tight in each other and make the whole sculpture stable without falling over.

At first I began this project with an old iron, but it wasn't really working out for me, as it was hard to sculpt and I was a beginner. Our teacher introduced new objects to us, and I chose a yellow submarine to sculpt instead. I chose this submarine because it had an interesting structure, and it reminded of toys I used to play with when I was younger, more specifically a certain ship that looked like the submarine. I added a little person at the end because I felt the submarine was lacking in some areas.
