Planning My Collection

After I’d had my fun sandblasting I moved onto the next step, planning the plinths! I wanted to get the wood cut ready to start building them today but thought I need to take some extra time to really think about this decision. The sizing, arrangement and quantity of plinths is going to be really important during this next stage of work. I needed to get the image I had in my head down on paper. I’m still unsure how this collection is going to work in practice outside of my head but planning it out today really helped. The arch way in the middle of the paper is how I imagine the viewer will enter the work. I want them to walk through the plinths down the central walkway if you can imagine that? I enjoyed experimenting with the different designs on different plinths to work out the positioning of the collection as a whole. By photocopying the original plan I was able to add in extra plinths and change the designs quite easily. I can really see this coming together! So with the plan as it is, that’s 8 plinths in total, so 5 more to make! I can always make more!
