Sculpture Design and Math Models
Xingjian Han, Carlo H. Séquin
Abstract

With inspiration from artists, Eva Hild and Charles O.Perry, we aim to clarify and simplify the design process for modeling complex free-form sculptures. During the process, we explored various commercial CAD software and produced different appraoches to model Eva and Charles' sculpture work.
The following meshes are modeled with Autodesk Maya.
Eva Hild's Wholly.

Eva Hild is a Swedish artist and sculptor.
