Terms in this set (19)
Any piece or type of sculpture that is meant to be seen from all sides
Sculpture in which three dimensional forms project from the flat background of which they are a part. The degree of projection can vary and is described by the terms high and low.
Sculpture in relief in which subjects emerge only slightly from the surface. No undercutting is present.
Sculpture in relief in which more than half of a significant portion of the subject emerges from the background. This sculpture thus requires undercutting in contrast to low relief
Working pliable material such as clay or wax into three dimensional forms.
Sculptural form produced by adding combining or building up material from a core or an armature. Modeling in Clay and welding steel are these processes
An art style in which the curves and contours of a subject are accurately portrayed
A rigid frame work serving as a supporting inner core for Clay or other soft sculpting material
The process of making a work of art by casting as opposed to additive or subtractive processes
A cavity created out of plaster clay metal or plastic for use in casting
A casting method. First a model is made from wax and encased in Clay or classing plaster. When the Clay is fired to make a mold the wax melts away leaving a void that can be filled with molten metal or other self hardening liquid to produce a cast
A subtractive process in which a sculpture is formed by removing material from a block or mass of wood Stone or other material with the use of sharpened tools
Sculpture made by removing material from a larger block or form
A circular often don't shaped decoration that protrudes from a flat surface
Creating a work of sculpture by putting together pieces that are already formed by the artist
A type of sculpture in which parts move usually suspended parts activated by air currents
An art medium in which the artist arranges objects or artworks in a room thinking of the entire space as the medium to be manipulated. Some of these are site-specific.
Any work made for certain place which cannot be separated or exhibited apart from its intended environment
Sculptural forms made from earth rocks or sometimes plants often on a vast scale and in remote locations. Some are deliberately impermanent.
