I think the easiest part was doing the plastering because I’m used to it and it’s pretty easy to do with the right materials. The challenging part would be actually making the whale, or working with wet newspaper. Some ideas I have would be making a huge net by using chicken wire, then add the whale and make it look like its breaking through. I might just scrap that idea, or actually keep it. My chosen theme is technically ocean or more like coral reefs, since I like it and I think it’ll look awesome. We use the design progress because this will help us through our project and it shows that if we’re changing ideas we already got something to think about in our designs. I’m looking forward to finish of or actually working on clay. I think I’ll make my chair more like a bright blue, more like a shore line kind of theme.
I’m planning to use this youtube video to help me make some coral or even seaweed for my chair. This technique is helpful, because coral are basically like tree branches. So, I could just twist and make a branch then stick them together.

1. Looking at what you have achieved over the last 10 weeks, describe how you feel about the chair now and what you have really achieved. (imagine being back at that starting point}
I feel really proud of what I’ve done in 10 weeks. This feeling of achievement is amazing, I haven’t felt this in a while.
2. Explain the elements that are applied (you may need to look at your poster again don’t forget movement is one too) to your chair so far. If you were to choose ONE to be the most important what would it be? Is there one much more dominant than the others?
Some elements that I’ve applied are texture and mass. I think the most important element is texture, because it covers up most of my chair. The sand, rock, animals are about 60% of my chair. While the mass is just the shark and whale.
