The 3 dimensional take on my shark painting took many forms before resulting in this state. At first the shark was protruding from clay waves, floating amongst the sea glass, however, the form did not look aesthetically pleasing to me. I deconstructed this, scraped off the clay waves, and planned to make the shark’s body like a cage holing all it’s precious sea glass inside (literally). The sculpey clay wasn’t holding up with the armature I created so yet again it was back to the drawing board. Finally, I came to the resulting form above (and below) where the shark is cut into pieces and the sea glass it’s trying to keep inside is practically overflowing from it’s parts. The copper wire is helping to hold the itself together, but at the same time, it pins the shark down so that it cannot swim. Materials: sculpey clay, sea glass, copper wire, glue, screws, wooden base, acrylic paint.
