|Three pieces, three textures|
One thing i really love about working with wire is the variety of textures that can be gotten by using different techniques. This idea was a big part of the thinking behind The Art of Wire.
These three pieces show three different results because of the techniques used to make them. The cuff at the left is rustic-looking with loosely twisted wires and uneven wraps. It's an early piece and was an experiment in working with twisted wire and wrapping. It seems to have an innocent kind of rustic appeal. The other two pieces are in the book- they show the textures gotten from hammering wire and using fine wire in dowel knitting.
