Found object – Hand model

I found this small model of a hand in uni and I wanted to make some sculptures based on it. I like the fact it is broken and discarded but I can now put it to use. As I have been creating work based on another artists makings, it is interesting to work off other objects, take aspects of them here and there to put into my own work.

Preliminary studies to be worked on 3-Dimensionally

I have made this small maquette of one of these designs. Using inspiration of Jon’s sketches of ‘Empirical Jungle’ and from the piece itself, as well as using the hand as a reference. I found that the weight of the clay dragged down the top of the piece, bending the wrist backwards. I kind of like how this has happened, its given a sense of expression in the hand, of weight pushing down through it, exaggerating the curves.
