  12. 12. Betsy Atwell Dudley<br />Many of my sculptures have dealt with the repetition of layers in wood, clay and metal. At first, they represented civilizations and ancestral and social patterns. However, as I got closer to nature and to my own center, I sensed a deeper meaning. I began to acknowledge and appriciate the presence of the divine in everythin. My art became stronger as I focus on the two fondations of reality-matter and spirit.<br />

  14. 14. Michelle Stitzlein<br />Michelle Stitzlein creates found object art / sculpture from recycled materials, including piano keys, broken china, license plates, rusty tin cans, electrical wire, bottlecaps, and other miscellaneous items. <br />
  15. 15. Found or Recycled Object Sculpture<br />
  16. 16. Our Project<br />Employ found objects to create a sculpture “in the round”. <br />“ Found objects” are objects that have been created for a purpose other than art, and are usually every day objects, easily recognized for a utilitarian function.<br />Their meaning in every day life is usually derived from their context in which we use them. By altering the objects’ context, or their form we can modify their meaning and significance.<br />
  17. 17. Insect sculpture<br />
  18. 18. Steps:<br />PLAN! Draw 5 different views of insect<br />Practice techniques with recyclable materials (Technique Board-Think about different shapes, cuts, materials, techniques you can use to make parts of insect like legs, antennae, stinger, wings, eyes, etc)<br />Build armature<br />Choose recyclable materials (cans, bottles, bottle caps, etc)<br />Cut-out and start attaching materials to armature<br />Remember careful craftsmanship!<br />
