art 140 by rebelica, on Flickr
This is something new that I'm trying out. I've been working with wire for about 20 years, but in the past I've only done sculptures and 3 dimensional crafts. I kindof stumbled upon this idea, and now I'm trying all kinds of new things with this method. The face on this one just kindof showed up out of nowhere. I was just doodling to see what would come of it. I think he's pretty cool. Let me know what you think.

Oh, wow!  This is really amazing!  I never would have thought of using wire in this way.  It's very clever!  It's also a great base for a mixed media piece.  It's just gorgeous, though!

Thanks! It took about two weeks to do, which compared to some of my pieces is relatively nothing. I've been doing all sorts of things with hammered wire now. It makes me happy!

That's very interesting and definitely an original! I like the texture you achieved with the wire. I want to touch it Smiley.

It actually does feel really cool. I have a few wire balls that I posted under housewares. Those are my tactile favorites.
