Texture: Plaster Carving
The Materials: Plaster: can be carved like stone Files, picks, screwdrivers, drills, etc. Newspaper, sandpaper
Additive Subtractive Types of Sculpture:
The process: A sketch least 2 views (turned in for a grade) Transfer this sketch to the block Begin with “wasting,” which is taking out the large chucks of material you don’t need End with detail carving and finishing the surfaces
Plaster Carving: Must have projections and recessions Needs to be decorated on all sides of the block Create negative spaces Must be able to stand on its own Open topic (pg- 13/school appropriate)
Max: FrontMax: Back
Sculpture in the Round:
Day 2: Common problems with carving
Visualizing depth: “Slave” By Michelangelo
Providing support for a standing figure
Low Relief vs. High Relief:
Day 3: From General to Specific
Monday: Progress Grade A formative grade To earn an “A” you need to be through the majority of the “wasting” phase, and about to begin detail work The final product is due Friday, 1/13 –Projections and recessions –Negative space –Texture/design on all sides
Plaster Review & Critique
You were able to decide what to carve. In one paragraph, explain why you chose to carve what you did, and why.
You have now done additive sculpture (wire figures, masks) and subtractive sculpture (plaster carving). In one paragraph tell me which you prefer, and why.
Carving can be a very difficult process. In one paragraph, tell me what about the carving process gave you the most difficulty, and why you think it did.
Tell me one thing about the sculpture that you like and would not change. Explain to me why you are happy with this aspect of your sculpture.
