My latest art project gave me the opportunity to work with 3-D media in order to emphasize an art element within my model. Sticking with fashion, I took on the challenge of modeling the precisely-shaped Crepe Boot, featured in season 2 of the YZY collection. Thought the time allotted did not permit the completion of my sculpture, the progress I made on it was quite impressive (especially considering my lack of practice with clay in over two years).
The creation process was fairly straightforward. I hand sculpted the overall shape of the Crepe Boot's silhouette, and worked with much precision and attentive to detail in order to replicate the original show to the best of my abilities. While sculpting the Crepe Boot, I used a wide array of clay tools, ranging from sharp knifes for accurate shaving, to kitchen forks for scoring prior to the application of slip. All of these tools were sued to create the end result.
The main purpose behind this sculpture was to really challenge myself and break my own boundaries as it pertains to the art mediums which I tend to use.
