Holzbildhauerei, botanical geometry / carving wood, botanical geometry

In course of this semester a wood sculpture will be designed. This object should be situated between organic and geometric shape.

We will research botanical geometry. We will look for a botanical inspiration. First step is drawing the crop and learn to understand the shape. We analyse the spatial criteria from the selected plant. It means, that we try to find the composing system in these natural examples. For a good formal solution we have to establish criteria, or to abstract them. Analyse is the precondi- tion to design a self-contained volume.

A small-size working model (made from clay) will be designed before starting work with wood. The sketch should show, that the design is made for wood
