The "Hirst Arts Studies" is dedicated to the
wonderful building blocks provided by
Hirst Arts Castle moulds. The professional range is expanding constantly, making it more and more challenging to
work with this product. On the other and it is fun to design unique building blocks that you can use within the Castle mould range.
The "Hirst Arts Studies" is where I like to show my (twisted) ideas on making custom blocks. As for some series of blocks they are not actual altered
blocks anymore but totally new designed and suited for special projects.
The Catacomb Roof:
It started off with the idea of making a possible roof for a dungeon or catacomb. Although I still have ideas about this project,
the attention shifted towards a possible sewer project. A nice example on how one test can lead to something completely else.
The Secret Passage:
When I think of dungeons in a fantasy setting I imagine things like traps, slippery walkways, voids, dirty pools, rivers, waterfalls, crystal chambers,
ruins of lost civilisations, treasures and so on. As a possible item for adding into my dungeon I am experimenting on a secret passage.
What is a dungeon without secret passages!
The dungeon is a hazardous place, full of strange and unexpected encounters, events, magical and unexplainable features.
One of these features can be found here, the creation of an underground (or dungeon) river.
Sculpting a Door:
For my small brick series I will make a door. I tried to photograph all essential steps in doing so.
I hope it will make sense and maybe you will pick up some sculpting tool also after seeing how simple this actually is.
