Flame – sculpture by Wire and Fibre
Hand knotted copper and steel wire. Height 64cm
This piece was created for the current exhibition “Structure” at In.cube8r Gallery, Fitzroy.
I wanted to build an intricate and ethereal structure with the application of industrial materials normally used for car wiring. My aim was to create harmony in this contradiction.
The technique I chose is my interpretation of basic macramé. It allowed me to create a shape that appears to be in flux. After many hours of wire twisting and sore hands, Flame was created.
For a subtle look, place it in front of a light wall. For a dramatic look, place it in front of a dark background.
