The Dark Side of Domesticity

I'm in love. 
I didn't think I'd ever feel that amazing feeling again. 
I thought I was past it.
I can't wipe the smile off my face and my eyes light up when I think of the object of my desire.
My love is increasing with each week.

I can't get enough of my art course.
3D is like...actually better than in the Simpsons when it went all 3D, it's just frickin' fantasmagorical! 
I could fill a room with sculptures on the theme of 'Domesticity'.
Here are a couple that I've managed to bring to life from the drawings in my art diary (some of my classmates suspect I have issues)... 

This is called 'End Cycle'

This is called 'Soliloquy'

Last week our teacher played host to a round of 'Master Sculptor' as we each had 40 minutes to fashion a work of art out of frozen chips. You might think 40 minutes is a long time with a pile of potato - actually it was really fun but the chips weren't keen to comply. This was my offering...

This I called 'The Potato Protest'

Dirty, Dirty, Dirty

Sorry, this post is not about what you think it is.

I've been absent from my blog for a while because my mind has been in the 3Dosphere as in my art course this term we are doing sculpture. Our first week began with half an hour's group brain storming and the class room's white board filled with words that popped into our collective heads at the mention of the word 'soap'. We then began our foray into the three dimensional, carving our inspirations from...

Yep - Soap!

For some inane reason I could only think of dirt.

Fingers get dirty and so does soap...

Censorship just had to come into it...

and one for priests who like altar boys...

The topic for our next sculpture is 'Domesticity'. I could fill a room with sculpture about that...
