For my wire sculpture, I built my teddy bear. I used to go to an overnight gymnastics camp when I was younger which is where I bought it and I have slept with it almost every night since. It took me a little time to figure out how to start but I ended up making 4 separate pieces – the head, the stomach, the arms, and the legs – and then attaching them together in the end. I enjoyed learning about the formation of wire throughout the project because I’ve never used it before. I believe I did a good job of making my sculpture look realistic without having it be too exact and perfect; it is abstract but you can still tell what it was. I had a hard time figuring out how to start in the beginning so I would’ve stayed calmer and just tried a few different methods before asking for help.
Although I did not make a sketch of my sculpture, I based it off of a photograph, as shown below.
