Media- Plaster for smaller sculptures, Lino Ink for print, Styrofoam, Spray Paint, Acrylic Paint, Aluminum Sheet Scrap, Galvanized Steel Wire, Ping-Pong Balls, Onion Skin [Drafting Paper] for large sculpture [15.5"x17.5"x21.5"]The Carnivorous Lemon- Final 2
was the Final assignment for 3D Design class, sometime during late second semester.
It was actually a multi-faceted project, dealing with making three plaster models based on a real fruit or vegetable- one realistic, one subtractive, and one additive, creating a linoleum print featuring the fruit or vegetable, and building a container to house these smaller projects.
Making the final project was quite a maddening experience. I had to rush to be done by the deadline, and I learned a lot of things doing it- be careful of burns when soldering wire, don't breathe in the spray paint, don't drop pieces with wet paint all over them, and beware of pointy metal teeth- the lemon bit me over and over while I was working.
I think it was all worth it in the end, and the professor ended up liking it.
