This is my initial foray into this genre of wire work. Thanks go out to artist Felix, a.k.a. Andrew for the pointers on where to begin in terms of construction. Thanks for being generous with your time and advice!
I used copper for my initial experiment because I didn’t want to be inhibited by the concern of wasting good silver in the event I crashed and burned, so to speak. I didn’t get too adventurous this time around. I simply wanted to focus on structural integrity, clean finishing and get a feel for this type of work. I am pleased with my initial experiement and I look forward to hoaning my skills in this genre of work.
While working on this piece, I gained inspiration for another set of experiements which should be a lot of fun. I can see it is going to be both fun and challenging to hoan my skills in this style of wrap. My hopes are that I can assimilate the rainbow style while infusing it with my own style.
This piece was completed on January 24th of 2008.
