Wood Bending: Curves and Volume
This course investigates various wood-bending techniques to explore form and volume. Students experiment with curved lines and organic forms by steaming, laminating, soaking and weaving. Students are encouraged to push the limitation of the material and explore the infinite potential of expression. This week of exploration emphasizes experimentation and play with linear elements, resulting in forms ranging from maquettes to prototypes for future sculpture and design projects.
