Tanis Montgomery, Student Work

Instead of using newspaper as a ground or as a collage medium as I thought would be the fairly obvious choice, I decided instead to use it as a sculptural material.  I tore newspaper into small pieces, added water, and used a blender to create a pulp and then compressed the pulp into small three-dimensional shapes.  This exercise was, for me, mostly an experiment with the material.  I found that it was very difficult to create forms with flat sides or with any amount of detail, as well as thin or flat objects. Each piece approximately 1.5 inch diameter.
