Additive + Final Touches

Before smoothing:

After smoothing:

After creating the holes, I felt the sculpture needed more than just subtractive, so I began scoring and slipping the same circles I carved out to give some contrast. Around halfway of my circle adding process, I got the idea of making my circles even more interesting. By taking my cut out circles and carving out a smaller circle within them, I was able to use the negative space to my advantage. The biggest problem I encountered was the scoring the smaller, thinner pieces and also keeping my piece neat. Adding so much slip and carving out areas caused a lot of places to look messy, and I had to be extra careful when cleaning it out because I didn’t want to ruin the circles I stuck on.
