Maquette City - Final Project 3D Sketching
During my previous project I created organic vessels. (Photos of vessels coming soon). For my final project I wanted to just explore a load of different materials and joining techniques. I also wanted to continue making vessels and so, My tutor suggested I design a collection of vessels which have a mechanical/ industrial feel, in contrast to my last project.
I struggled to make a start with this project, usually I design everything in my sketchbook and then just make it, but as I was really struggling with ideas and just generally conveying them. I decided to make maquettes. I spent the weekend just making them while watching tv.
By sunday night, I had about 25 maquettes, by tuesday I had about 36, some of them good, others not so good. Which is why not all of them were photographed.
I plan to make some of these out of aluminium, copper, gilding metal, perspex and use wood for the bases. To give them the mechanical/ industrial look I’m going to add screws, nuts, rivets, washers, etc. As well as enamel and heat patinas.
I’ll post photos of the finished collection.
