Balsa Foam Carvings

Our Sculpture & Pottery class created low-relief sculptures from Balsa foam. A relief is a sculptured artwork where a carved or modelled form is raised (or in the case of a sunken relief, lowered) from a plane from which the main elements of the composition project (or sink). Raising or lowering the plane is achieved by removing material not relevant to the image. The objects project from a flat surface, so it is a combination of two-dimensional and three-dimensional art.
