This is a lil’ Wire Basket (7″h x 4″w x 3″d) I made over three years ago. I enjoyed making it, and have continued to like it, but just this week decided to make more. My ideas are frequently ahead of my fingers. I have described my process —including idea- development— as being glacial at times. (This piece seems to exemplify the point.) My sketchbooks contain more ideas than I will probably ever make. I’m not quite sure what makes the time seem right to pursue certain ideas, but this one’s has arrived!
I have used Kanthal wire on certain forms for years as a way to “draw” in space with another material. (Check out the Wire Flowerbrick on my Gallery page, and a brief explanation of Kanthal wire on my Process page.) More to come!
