Today I'm going to share with you my final project for my sculpture class. Tomorrow will be my projects for painting and next Saturday will be my photography projects.
Our project theme was "dwelling". We were to use wood and one other material to build a dwelling that we could fit in to. Obvious solutions, like a house, were not going to be acceptable for this. My classmates came up with a variety of things, including a coffin, a nest, an outhouse, a tree (not the most original in my opinion), a circus tent, a beach hut/play fort, a bench, and a chair.
And lo and behold, my milkweed pod became my dwelling. It houses life in the form of seeds, which are released in late summer/fall, in order to continue the plant's existance.
I made it through, with a little help, and am pretty happy with it. These photos are the only proof it existed, however, as I did dismantle it. I had thought about bringing it home to use as an outdoor chair, but Chad wouldn't have been keen on that idea, and really, it would probably have ended up covered in dog pee.
The only thing I kept here was the yarn, which I will be making into something for next winter. Probably another cowl.
I hope you are enjoying your weekend! See you tomorrow for more.
