Wire lace

Another assignment is completed and installed.  It was a process of trial & error, and very low tech (papier mache & wire).

Completed bird-netting armature, before papering over.

Upright armature, overlapping layers of netting.

Testing the paper-covered form on site.

Starting the first panel of wire lace.

By the time I’d done the seventh panel, I’d worked out how to control the tangle.  Next time, I will do fewer, wider panels.

First wire lace panel completed.

Completed wire lace, resting.

Installed under the sheoaks at Gomboc.

Gomboc Sculpture Park and Gallery is in Middle Swan, and the annual sculpture survey opens on June 6th.
