The Plan…..

 To create a  geometric abstract sculpture that suggests form and volume through negative space. The sculpture, developed  from the manipulation of a single sheet of card (see above)  will be constructed in mild steel.

Aided by human touch and natural interactions, the sculpture, referential of both the organic and industrial world, will evolve through time as it is claimed by it environment.

Process One, Former Construction.

The construction process involves building an M.D.F forma, then laminating layers of hardboard over it. The hardboard becomes the wooden armature for the final steel plates.

Part of the preparation for this project has been sourcing an affordable work space. Located in Pembrokeshire, the space comes complete with sculpture assistant and site foreman – but can you tell who is who?
