Become a Sculptor
If you are creative and imaginative and enjoy molding and forming figures from clay, plastic and other hard materials then you can consider becoming a sculptor. This profession gives you the chance to put your artistic skills to work in designing three-dimensional works of art that are often displayed in art galleries or public places such as parks and buildings.
As a sculptor, you will be carving different sculpture pieces using chisels and other hand tools into the design you have in mind.
One reason to become a sculptor is that it allows you to do something you love to do. It doesn’t matter if you’ll have to keep a day job in another industry while you’re still starting so you can pay the bills. When you go into your studio to start carving, chiseling and assembling materials into a beautiful work of art, nothing could be more fulfilling. Money isn’t always the main consideration to go into this profession but the desire to create lasting art pieces. That being said, sculptors who have already carved a name for themselves in the industry do get paid handsomely for their work and are commissioned to undertake financially lucrative projects.
