Fruit Sculpture

Inspired by Erika’s use of fruit in her

sculpture, we created clay sculptures of

a range of fruit. We started by arranging

real fruit into groups; it was good bringing

different fruits together and trying

different compositions – being playful.

The process got us thinking about balance

and how things are formed, and of our

own stability.

When moulding the clay, our hands

became tools; to create texture we used

our own fingers and nails. We used wire to

reinforce our sculptures, helping support

items that wouldn’t normally balance.

Creating sculpture from fruit that we

would usually eat was a new experience; it

was a ‘culture shock’ sampling fruit we had

never eaten before.
