A Music Sculpture
In my Art School Degree show titled, “A Music”, I combined my enjoyment of travel and music to investigate a narrative, a personal journey into the conceptual element to represent my feelings through working with clay.
The outcome was hugely distant from the wheel thrown technique I previously used to create my ideas. I began to use music literally to describe a journey. Being stuck with thrown vessels fashioned into lutes I plaster cast a Ukulele and discovered the rhythmic shape of the body, repeated to make a staircase. I then passed a musical note though a monitor producing on screen an effect like a heart beat and let the shape reflect that rhythm and timing eventually constructing a totemic sculpture from slip cast moulds.
