Abstract Designs

On this page I will be going through the process of producing a sculpture from the idea to the finished sculpture starting with the small models called Maquette’s.

The students are shown how to make the Maquette’s in the welding workshops from steel tube which can easily be welded together in just a couple of hour’s tuition.  

Maquette’s can be made from any material you have to hand. card, foam and plastic after they are cleaned up and sprayed pictures are taken and supper imposed on images of landscapes, gardens, etc. 

This process is ideal for working out the size of the required sculpture, colour and the best location for the installation

The maquette on the left is extended in photoshop and super imposed on a garden image



This maquette is also extended and had the colour changed
