Re: Found Object Sculpture Themes

My advance students have used the theme of Family in found sculptures for a
couple of years and they turn out great. They create an object for each
family member based on role in family and characteristics and then join
objects somehow to create a family unit. We have had broken glass and
bricks, flowerpots with each member growing out, etc.
