Material Sculpture

The brief for this project was to choose a material and build a 3D model that represented its properties. I chose glass as my material as it had a number of different interesting components. I wanted my sculpture to show how delicate and fluid glass is and I did this by melting plastic - as it resembled the physical appearance of glass. The result of doing this was that the heat allowed soft, smooth curves to form. However, I also wanted to showcase the fragility of glass and how different it is when it is cracked or shattered. I did this by juxtaposing the curves with sharp and irregular pieces of plastic.
