Barbara Hepworth (1903 - 1975) is known as a modern master of sculpture. Instead of making art that looked like people or things, she made sculptures and drawings using abstract shapes and created holes within the shape and form. Take a look at some of her sculptures and let’s ponder: Why did she make holes through her sculptures?
To better understand it, let’s make a Barbara Hepworth-inspired pendant necklace which we can look through! What can you see through your pendant necklace?
All that you need are as follows:
(1) Air Dry Clay
(2) Objects to make holes e.g. a pen, bottle cap, jar, medicine cup and etc
(3) Acrylic paint
(4) Acrylic gloss varnish
(5) String / Yarn
