Well, this is novel. A blog post from me that's actually about wire. I gathered all my wire together to try and photograph it yesterday - and my word, I have a lot! I had to stand on a box to photograph it, and even then, it wouldn't fit on the A2 mountboard I was using as my photography backdrop.
All the smaller reels live in this recently purchased drawer unit. I like to have them accessible, so it's on the left-hand side of my desk.
To me, wire has so much potential, in the same way that seed beads do for those enviably talented sculptural seed bead artists who can create beauty from tiny glass beads and thread. Sometimes I look at a mundane reel of wire, and I see sunsets, or meadows, or cobwebs. What mundane materials transform in your imagination into something quite different?
