You are going to make a sculpture out of scraps of things joined together.
The idea is inspired by Sir Anthony Caro, a British sculptor who made a new kind of sculpture that didn’t look like anything else. He used steel in different colours and shapes, often to solve puzzles like how shapes might spill over an edge, fall out of a window or balance on a beam. He positioned pieces of steel to get the effect he wanted then welded them together.
The pieces in this sculpture Early One Morning seem to dance across the floor!
Get some ideas for your sculpture. Take a close look at Anthony Caro's sculptures by clicking through the slideshow above. Do you notice how his sculptures all look as if something is about to happen?
How does he get them to balance? How does he make his circles and squares stand up? Can you find a way to do that? How does he use edges to get things to hang? Is this something you could do with your sculpture?
It might help to draw some of Anthony Caro's sculptures or draw your ideas for your own sculpture.
