26 Plaster Review & Critique

27 You were able to decide what to carve. In one paragraph, explain why you chose to carve what you did, and why.

28 You have now done additive sculpture (wire figures, masks) and subtractive sculpture (plaster carving). In one paragraph tell me which you prefer, and why.

29 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.

30 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.
