The New Crop of Shoes

Fairmont State Foundations

It’s that time again, and our talented 3D Foundations students at Fairmont State University have not disappointed.  With only a few rolls of masking tape and two weeks of class time, these artists recreate custom footwear, keeping a direct 1-1 scale with their source shoes.  For more information on how the 3D and Sculpture department is progressing, follow my blog!


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.
