Jack Brophy, Royal Pine Scent

In my piece I wanted to convey the conflict of deforestation using the hard hat made of soap, as well as show, with the nose, how appreciating nature will become harder in time. The 8.5 x 11 is the dimensions of regular copy paper which is a prime cause of deforestation and is easily relatable to the viewer. I feel the nose was a big accomplishment as it was outside my comfort zone and turned out quite nice. I also carved out the inside of the hardhat cleanly without making it too thin. The biggest challenge was the lid as it needed to be thin but also connect properly with the outside of the hat. If I were to this again I would plan out the soap better before hand in order to keep the dimensions realistic.
