The following is the 3D version of the 2D Fractures project. I took the broken pieces of glass and embedded them into a styrofoam setting. The styrofoam was arranged to form a chair or throne. The inside was spray painted red while the outside was painted yellow.
Here are the roots to my tree. I first started out with three roots (one of them being to the trunk) and after I glued them, it proved to be not strong enough to hold up my tree. The fourth one that you see is really a rainbow (it was added on to the same time for support). The largest roots (with the longest base) were added on much later. I glued them to the blue area (which is supposed to represent Earth) once the sculpture was finished. Above, the roots were only posed so I would know where to add them on before I glued them on. I then painted them purple and gold for color. The lighter purple that you see was a leftover purple that I made months ago, while the darker one was a store-bought purple (which is now my favorite purple color to paint with.)
This is a slideshow of the ‘Tree’ part of my 3D project. The images show the final piece (in its colors, collages, pieces, and assembly.) I had to use the glue gun to glue the branches, roots, and pieces together. After it was assembled, it still looked fragile, so I used colorful string to tie it together so each part is connected to something else.
