Wire we Creative?
So I asked him if I could have the wire he was throwing away, he was curious, but agreed. I first made a tree sculpture (no picture available) with thin copper wire, the kind that there are 100s of inside some of the plastic coating. I wound together a big bunch for the trunk, seperated into smaller bunches for branches, and seperated them all individually and put beads on the ends for the leaves. I used yellow, orange, and red beads because they looked good with the copper, so it was a fall tree. I brought the tree to work, partly to show the elecrition what I was doing with his junk wire. He thought it was very cool, as did all my coworkers. One guy fell in love with it so much that he had to have it, which is why I have no picture.
So when I wanted to make something quick, and I had just brought up a box of wire for the chair project, I thought of this flower, and luckily, I had a tiny bottle to put some wire flowers in.
This project was my Thing for today.
