Understanding form with convexities and depressions
The concavity looks to understand how void surfaces work within a body. Students sketch with plasticine and hand dynamic forms that push space around them, always looking for a form that generates interest as they move around it. Cavities within the bodies enhance or create the form statement, always with the foal to create a unified skin, not just a hole withing the form. Each piece is carved out of a solid block of plaster, allowing the students to refine their hand-eye coordination and learn how subtle changes in form affect their perception.
