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...

PS: Welcome to Andrea from Maybe it's just me and Annmarie Pipa from Momto8.

  3. Esbboston I haven't paid much attention to 3D either, although now I can see all the clues in my craft activities that suggest I might like it.
