dc.description.abstract The objective of this creative project was to see if inspiration from historical and literal references could be integrated with an expressionistic approach to sculpture in the form of a memorial. This study involved creating a series of electroformed models or maquettes (seven final pieces) that examined this three-dimensional dilemma based on the concept of building a larger memorial sculpture for an abandoned cemetery near Oxford, Ohio, where my ancestors are buried (there are no monuments left in this wooded location). The cemetery, called the Freeman Cemetery, is named in honor of my Great Great Great Grandfather John Freeman, a Revolutionary War Soldier, who is buried there. This site was of particular concern as it is threatened to be disturbed and possibly built on as part of a nearby expanding housing development (it may not be protected by Ohio law). This study included looking at the site, the natural flora and fauna of the Midwest, the historical precedence in memorials, and the utilization of background in architecture to help generate the forms. It also involved learning the techniques of electroforming, sculptural construction and fabrication, and patina processes.
