“When it comes to the future, there are three kinds of people: those who let it happen, those who make it happen, and those who wonder what happened.”

Sculptural Dress Form
Final piece in its setting for the Degree Show.
work in progress….
Susan Stockwell - creates dress and other sculptural forms from various waste items, disposable items that clog our lives and have no worth.
The choice to use everyday items she remarks they are “stains of existence”
Once sculpted they can reveal potential and a new beauty.
Drawing - Print - Sketch - Ink - Colour - Shade - Mark Making - Lines
I feel that drawing is equally important as the 3D elements in the development of this project. An Effective way to show my thought process which sometimes cannot be achieved simply through the 3D aspects of my work.
It adds another dimension to relate the delicacy and the trace i am looking to create within sculpture.
I have made a 2m long drawing to exhibit in the corridor for the Degree Show
Nature inspired sculpture - using everyday discarded materials.
Such artworks help encourage individuals to think before they throw unused items in the bin.
Process of making; collect tabs from morrisons, cut and ruffle, dip and set in plaster, dry out, attach to chicken wire panels using wire, attach and arrange various panels together.
The drying out is what lengthens the process. The casts were made and then stored in the kiln room to dry, but any oppertunity to get them out in the sun really speeded things up.
