this module was definitely one to remember as I’ve never really been so pleased with my art before! the freedom was great but also quite stressful at times. but i cannot wait to have another module where we have complete freedom to do what we want!
i found it to be quite a challenge on thinking what would be the best way to display the jars, so i was experimenting a little with the jars. thinking about if i should stack them, putting some jars on top of each other, just lining them up on a table? displaying them on a shelf?
i eventually came up with what i thought was a really cool idea. now i have ten jars in total, so i decided to line up five of my jars onto a shelf and them attach the other five underneath the shelf by screwing the lids onto the bottom of it. i was quite surprised on how good it actually looked because i didn’t think it would actually work. i thought they’d end up falling and smashing onto the floor but the shelf is quite sturdy. even if they did fall and smashed onto the floor it would still look good!!
here is my third final piece. i have experimented in many ways on how to display them and i will line them up on two shelves. i found collecting the jars rather difficult, as no one in my family had any spare. so it took quite a while to collect them. but i found it quite fun as well. with collecting things to put inside them and then id have funny looks of people and they would ask me why i was collecting tree bark and cigarettes ect…..
(i did not make this, i found it on the internet)
