Foundations: 3D self portraits

Contour Wire Sculpture

The second project the 3D Foundations students at Fairmont State had to tackle was translating contour line drawings into a three dimensional form.  The format is loosely based off of the wire sculpture of Michael Murphy, a contemporary artist based in Georgia.  Thanks to Dylan Collins and Jason Lee at WVU for this project, great way for beginning students to investigate contour line principles.

    Thank you for the examples, I work with HS sculpture students and introduce Alexander Calder to them, I’m now looking to into revisiting wire sculpture in Sculpture 2 class in Portraiture, this helped a lot. thanks
