For the past 2 weeks or so (almost a week of class time) I have been working on a 3D project. If you've read my introduction, you would know I love 3D art, so yay me :). We could choose between using "trash" (scrap cans, metal, wood, etc.), wire, plaster, or clay. I chose wire, as it was the only material that I had never really used. I brainstormed for a while and finally decided to build a hat. I made the base, but then decided to make something different. I looked around at what other people were making, and I saw they were all art, and other than looking nice, served no practical purpose. After that and a little bit more thinking, I decided to make a basket. I used higher gauge (thicker) wire to make the base in a snail-like rotary form, and the handle. Then I used thinner wire to tie everything together and add aesthetics. I would twist the thinner wire along the thicker ones, as well as across, to help hold things in. There are some pictures below, and i'd love it if you could give me some feedback to improve my work. Thanks!
