In the studio, a "maquette" is a small, usually tabletop-sized piece that is seen as a design for a possible large scale sculpture. The large sculpture is an artist's dream and a possibility, but these small maquettes are unique pieces of art in and of themselves.

Often times a full scale sculpture begins with a maquette. This provides an idea for how the full scale piece will look and come together. Both the artist and the viewer benefit from being able to modify a design and the creation techniques based on desired looks and location. Although sculptures in their own right, maquettes may evolve into full size sculptures.
