Materials: Balsa wood, wood glue, paper, masking tape
Dimensions: 4" x 4" x 1", 2" x 2" x 5", 3.25" x 2" x 6"
Focal Point: While there's a lot going on in this sculpture, I wanted to try and get as many of the lines as I could point toward the center of the ring. I used wood glue, balsa wood, and paper.
Repetition: I took balsa wood shavings and delicately glued them together, starting from the middle and building outward. It creates a fountain effect, with the repeating lines and curves.
Texture: The center was a mixture of wood glue and balsa wood. The front in peeled back, revealing the inside, where the balsa wood shavings are stuck in the glue, creating a jagged texture. However, on the other side of the piece, those same wood shaving are encased in the wood glue and have a smooth texture. The disc in suspended by a rope made of masking tape, so it can be viewed from multiple angles.
