Volume/Mass

By, Laura smith

This piece shows volume. The audience can see the length, width, and height of the piece.
This piece shows volume in a different way. The pottery is round (so it cannot be measured by height, length, and width), but still contains volume.
This image portrays mass and volume. The object is not hallow and creates a feeling of density or gravity.
This bowl shows volume well. We can see that it is occupying space, however, it does not represent a large mass due to the concave surface.
This piece represents volume. The drum has a small taste of open volume due to the red strings that create a boundary, but are not filled with matter.
This piece represents both volume and mass. It is enclosed, so it would appear to have a larger mass. However, because it is a drum, we can assume that the inside is hallow, indicating that it would actually have a small mass.
This sculpture represents mass. This piece appears heavy and gives off a connection to the earth. If split in half, we would be able to see the matter throughout the whole sculpture.
This piece represents a large mass too. It appears to be very heavy. This is asymmetrical mass because it cannot be equally divided on a central axis.
The crown represents open volume. It creates a shape, but it does not enclose the space.
This piece creates open volume as well. It creates the image of a man, but is not filled with matter. It is more light and airy than a solid stone sculpture would be.
