The one class that at the beginning of the semester that I thought was going to be my toughest class, 3D Design, ended up being the one class that I have had the most fun in and put forth the only projects that I am proud of.
Here are some of them:
This project was all about paper manipulation. basically bending, folding, creasing, tearing and doing whatever to paper to give it new form. The above are only a couple of a handful that we had to do. The project was more of a preparation into the next project, which was another paper manipulation but on a bigger scale.
All of these were created without use of glue or tape. All folding, all of the time. Well, I lied. There is glue holding the pieces to the board, but that's it. It seems like each project is suppose to prepare us for the next one - the egg basket.
We started with a fruit or vegetable, I choose a red pepper, and then cut it up. From there we were to draw inspiration from the shape of the pepper, inside and out, and then use that to come up with a pattern to create something that could hold an egg.
The overall basket is to hold at least 8 eggs, the eggs couldn't be touching each other or the ground, and the basket had to be able to stand on its own and be lifted off the ground without falling apart. Again, no glue or tape could be used.
I had designed my basket to be displayed like it is in the very first picture, but as I was assembling it I noticed that the bottom of it had an unintentional design to it as well. So that's why I took so many pictures at different angles.
