Working with Wire

IMG_3412For a display alongside the upcoming exhibition, Flux, Flow, Flight, at Orleans House Gallery, I was asked to make wire sculptures inspired by the lesser known works of Alexander Calder. Enthusiastic about the challenge and the opportunity for my gang, I was nevertheless a little apprehensive that it might prove a tricky way to start the term. Once again, however, my teenagers came up trumps and produced an incredible array of wire creatures, demonstrating their total versatility and willingness to try something new.
Here, you see pieces by Oliver, Isabella and Leonie, from top to bottom.
