Arch way (brooch)
Near the end of a year long residency I began exploring a new body of work with steel wire. Using various gauges I create forms by weaving and wrapping the wire, repeating lines within the forms themselves. This creates objects that are light and delicate, yet very durable. The shadows these forms generate are as integral to the work as the wire itself. This type of fabrication has allowed me to work both on and off the body, playing with scale and line.
