The first thing I figured out is that most of my class took to wire sculpture quicker than I did. They had a blast, and one of the classes is going to do it again next week, although we're going to bring in some corrugated card board shapes as an extra element. I can't wait to see what happens.
|Personal first try: butterfly on a stick (in Green Bay colors). I don't think it would be a good idea to remove it, so don't ask me to.|
|Dolphin jumping above ocean (sun not visible yet) in progress.|
|The rare, pink one-legged songbird. My husband thought it was a chicken, but I let him know pretty quick that it was a normal bird, thank you very much.|
|Tree in progress.|
I'll try to get the rest of the photos up later so you can see the other student efforts. Who knew wire could be so much fun?
Oh, and a final tip. Don't sit on your sculpture when you're done. We found that one out the hard way.
