Saw To Dust

This is one of my favorite pieces I have done so fare in school. So theses days I’m a junior, that means I have two art classes. One of them is painting and the other one is mixed media. But today I’m going to talk about my mixed media project. Three weeks ago my mixed media teacher gave us an assignment where we had to create a sculpture using one thing and one thing only. Now I thought about this project very carefully because I only had three weeks. It needed to be something easy to get, something no one ells would, and won’t cost me a cent. So then I thought of dust because my house is really dusty and I could probably collect it easily, but I wouldn’t be able to make my project as big as I would want itto be. That’s when I thought of saw dust, I could just get it from the technical theater department at my school. Let me give you guys some advise, collecting saw dust is not as easy as it sounds, it’s basically a lot of back breaking work. But it was all worth it.

  1. Emily, this is so cool. What are the dimensions? Is it as big as it looks?
    Also, are those objects in there made out of wood? You know, since you could only use one thing…
