is my first wire sculpture
aside from the "Acorn House" I made for little Charlie.
I used the paper cloth
to make an inner bra or lining,
which I then affixed to the outer structure with more wire.
I added some decorative wire as well.
This was not an original idea,
but one that I adapted from a dvd
taught by Jenny Cochran Lee,
called Collage in the Round,
which I found in Craft Daily.
As you can probably see,
I did a lot of journaling on this first piece.
It was quite therapeutic.
And it was also helpful for me to build the structure.
I decided it was only right that since I had built
a 'before' piece, that I should also
construct an 'after' surgery structure.
So, here is "Gone Tomorrow"
I thoroughly enjoyed constructing this second piece!
I felt at peace and free to do as I pleased -
as I hope to feel after my surgery.
My friend Bernice shared a bumper sticker she saw recently:
"Got Boobs? Check 'Em!"
I want that to be the subtitle of this installation
in my show.
.....and by the way, that advice is for you too!!!
I hope to do more wire structures in the future.
I'm not sure of the subject matter,
but I thoroughly enjoyed making something
and adding the cloth/paper layer.
All of these photos should enlarge,
so feel free to take a closer look at the construction.
thanks for stopping by
peace to you and yours
