Forrest shared the first step to making a big sculpture which was to make a preliminary model of ours sketches or a maquette. This process help me see my original idea in 3D form and modify it accordingly. It was very nice to see the diversity of ideas across the room and see them come alive. I have very little experience making sculptures so this process was definitely a challenge. I was able to work in different maquettes but ultimately I was able to create something that I really liked. Afterwards, we were able to learn a little about laser cutting, a fascinating tool that might complement the final look of my project.
