Today I would like to introduce my latest wire art, which is a large wall decor piece, 25″x25″.
It is my own vision of Mother Nature, Gaia, the Earth Goddess. It took a while to finish it, 6 month or so, because I worked only when I had spare time and inspiration. My art pieces are all free-form, no drafts or drawings, I basically go with the flow. Here is the final piece, hanging on my wall.
… and a close-up, to check those details…
I remember the first steps. I started with a head… experimenting the wire twisting technique. I had no idea what will come out of that head.
Then I started to build frames and wrap them with beads.
… and kept adding beads, and beads, and beads…
Now SHE is ready. Gaia, the Earth Goddess, a beautiful piece of art that reigns in my art studio. Displayed high on a green wall, she dominates the whole area and makes anyone reflect on life and the greatness of nature.
