Now that i had my drawings, it was time to do something with them. We had a wire working workshop that morning so I decided to see what kinds of things I should do with my drawings and what possibilities there were with the wire. I’d done a lot of wire work before but I’d never done it with this idea of drawing with wire in mind, it was usually purely a functional thing. For example I usually used wire when I needed a frame for something, I very rarely left wire all on it’s own so it was interesting to try this different way of thinking with the material.
I decided that I would first use my wooden frame drawing to produce something fairly 2D to see what result I could get from it.
I started by finding some wire that I liked the thickness of. I used fairly thick wire because I wanted it to hold a firm, strong shape like wood does. I used pliers to manipulate it and get clean shapes and angles.
