The sculptural final piece will be made using the technique of wire armature. I will attempt to make the entire sculpture of wire, foil and clay, however some elements such as the tower may need to be made out of a lighter material such as card or paper mache.

the elements of the sculpture relate to my main choice of Dali and Gaudi, and also the theme of fears and phobias; the snake and the raven portraying animal phobias and also symbols of death and danger, both fears. The colouring and detail of the elements in the sculpture are inspired by the artists I have researched relating to the theme Passions and Obsessions like Ellen Jewett and Alfred Basha, such as the trees in Ellen Jewett’s sculptures and the snake in Alfred Basha’s illustrations.
