Giant 3D Foam Head Sculpture

“Cellular” by Olga Ziemska Studio


olgaz_11Hot Wire Foam Factory tools are amazing! Especially, my favorite, the Bow Cutter!  What normally would have taken me 4 days to carve only took 1 hour! The bow cutter was a remarkable time saver!

The wooden discs which covered the foam came from trees which were either removed or trimmed in the Tremont area of Cleveland, just a stone’s throw from the sculpture’s permanent home in the lobby of the Westin Cleveland Downtown hotel.



I took video of my assistant and I using the bow cutter to carve out the head shape.

 Suggested tools/materials for this project:

2×4 Bow Cutter • Foam Fusion Glue • Industrial Hot Knife Kit
