My place to put up three-dimensional sculpture ideas.

Tube Cube

Re-assessment of "Tube Cube" with a truncated spherical base. (It's hard to illustrate unless the camera is set at ground level.) It rises four inches at the center and tapers off to ground level radially at ten feet. It is hard to chose the best setting for this piece on a compass setting for best shadow effect. I have set the cube basically twenty degrees from due north.

Hollow, Component-Assembled Sound Abatement Walls

I've taken another look at a hollow version of a component assembled sound abatement wall that would be filled on site with dirt.

These are basically eight foot by eight foot, four feet wide at their narrowest portion that present an undulating line forty-five degrees across the corners diagonally.

A Study of Technique in Lamination (EPS -Extruded Poly-Styrene..."Styrofoam")

With this study I stumbled upon a technique which slices layers - giving up vital measurements - with just one command, the extrude button.
Here is the piece with the corners removed.
Additional edges trimmed away and colored.
Integral part situated in front of a "Slicer". Think of one of those potato slicing machines from the Sixties. The rectangle has regularly spaced bars that when intersected with the object deliniate where it passed through the model.
And there they are, measurements approximating where the shape will end up after adding Bondo.



Revisiting Sphere In Cube

I am going to try a model off this design at four feet.
My intent will be to make a negative mould carving foam layup with a rotary tool that is set in one swivelling position, from which I will make a casting.

Potentially I could create an assemblage out of that to form this at 8 x 8 x 8'.

Playing around with old ideas for a decorative fence today.

Wavy Triple Block


A little bit of exercise on this one. Started out with individual blocks set in a certain pattern, then simply tripled one finished block as a component.

Quick Sketch This Morning

I had to finish Helprin's "A Winter's Tale" this morning before getting on with life, but a multiple cube crystaline jumped right into my imagination right after. Weather changes have made my shoulder ache too, so I could not really rush things.

Here they are:

Sharps, Flats, and Fishes

Yesterday I started playing with Octohedrons  that overlap.


Then I tried a set number (8) with a set number of colors.







Then I decided, "Well, what if the points were rounded off."



Designing sculptures children can play on, somewhat seems to pull me out of dark periods. This was a short distance from creating oblong sphereoids. 



Then it was back to something more somber in pattern for some kind of architectural screening.
