Betonskulptur/concrete sculpture: making of

concrete sculpture organic volume, curve, bowl
• teaching method: modelling,
• material: clay, plaster, concrete • usability of the module:
Application of three-dimensional criteria, volume in motion Awareness in using curves
In this elective you will have the chance to make experience by creating a free sculptural object. The content of this class is continuing directly the impressions from the sculptural work- shop during the welcome week.
Super cial, the change of subject, from Architecture to sculp- ture, is a relaxing and diverse experience.
The background of this idea, the shift into another subject, of- fers an easer way to win three-dimensional criteria, more than by designing a building with functions.
The relationship between large volume and small detail and the noticeable scale of that object is one thing. The visual potency from curve and bowing another aspect.
By the way, the bowl, as an static principle, allows us to be economical with material and to reach a maximum in vitality.
The rst step is the modelling of a free ceramic sculpture. The second step is, that we will transform the model into concrete, after accomplishing. We produce casting shells and so on… Both objects, the clay model and the concrete object are hol- low.
For the modelling and the designing process the hollow cera- mic technique has unique in uence to make the object vivid. When you build a hollow clay sculpture, from the bottom to the top, you have to think in every moment in sections, like architects have to.
