Prompt: To construct a still life using wire

In this project, we are going to use wires to reconstruct another still life. At first, it’s not easy to find a thing that not only you want to make but also entertaining. When I went home to search for content, I found that I had a life-size gummy bear model and that inspires me a lot.

By sketching its 3D look first, we started to make simple structures based on this. There were concerns about this object because of the curves and specific body parts.and I did find many ways to make the sculpture more neat and solid by working with my professor. Through the process of revising and reconstructing, I am pretty satisfied with its final look.
