Project Description

The class project is to pick a mineral you really like and reproduce it as a sculpture. Yaaay! FREEDOM!
You can either reproduce the shape and change the color or reproduce it in it's entirety.

No need to make an exact replica, but your final sculpture needs to look like a mineral, as this is the purpose of this class. 

The size of your sculpture doesn't matter, it all depends on what you want to do with it in the end, either integrate it in a bigger artwork or use it in a piece of jewelry.

Please share your final project with the class as well!
