The sculpture program emphasizes a hands-on exploration of both traditional and innovative practices in the fabrication of ideas in the round. Students are taught a variety of techniques including fabrication in wood, steel, and plastics; found object and mass produced material manipulation; and the casting iron, bronze, aluminum, plastics and rubbers. Personal ideas and visions are encouraged, fostered, and brought into reality using our various sculpture studios and equipment. UW Sculpture Studios include specialized shops in woodworking, plaster work, steel fabrication, foundry and blacksmithing, lost wax casting, as well as computer processes such as laser engraving and 3-D rapid prototyping. The history of sculpture and contemporary sculpture theory is researched and discussed while students produce objects and environments created to communicate their findings of the world around them.
