I've been playing with the look of pushing materials through others. Here i stretched sacking over wire hoops and then dripped or squished materials through them. I like the idea of hanging them and them being openings, like the ends of drainpipes. Also want to try out the use of lighting a bit more.

Long object

This is just a long piece of wood tied up with hemp string and then covered with papier-mache, plaster and then PVA. it's surprisingly heavy and probably just under 6foot. i love the glossy surface that the PVA gives it.

plaster cube

this is the first of my work to not hang and sit on the floor. i dont think its quite finished but its already going mouldy which is mad. think the large solid form of a cube will go further and i'm now beginning to look at holes.

plaster pods

these are my initial casts that i want to take further. am thinking about lots of pods on each length of rope. floor to ceiling. and lots of a forest.

plaster sphere

this is a large plaster sack thing on a rope. its really heavy and i didnt wait for the plaster to dry properly so you can now see the plaster rotting inside the latex! quite like that about it though.
