I just LOVE this material especially the aluminun armature wire. I started making small jewllery pieces and then mobiles. This quickly evolved into animal imagery and the pieces just started grow in size. I am somewhat limited in my size now unless I want to start welding but I think the light weight adds to the sculptures delicate structure and essential lines.
Working with wire does take some patience and for me that is difficult but the more I accept what direction the wire chooses to take and persevere with what my mind thinks the essential lines of sculpture should be the better the result.
My hope is to capture the essence of the subject matter, what makes me know it is a horse or a rhino, give the essential lines and the brain of each individual viewer fills in the rest with their visual knowledge.
