We drew out our own patterns for the five platonic solids by examining already made platonic solids, and through trial-and-error, recreated them with bristol board.

Then we made three of our own imagined shapes!

We also spent a few classes learning Rhinoceros, a 3D modeling program, and created structures inspired by sacred architecture. I was interested in the structure of Renaissance groin vaults, so I used their shape as modules that could be warped and stretched.

We visited the nature lab and chose an object to make larger versions of with plasticine clay. I chose a dried out (and very bumpy) gourd. Then we made plaster molds of the clay models and I cast and finished my plaster gourd.
