Reconstruction begins

Reconstructed sculpture 2007 (wip)

And here is the new work in progress - I have been working all day in the studio and carried on this evening and I am looking forward to waking up to this new piece of work - it is a long time since I felt that mixture of enjoyment and unfamiliarity with an art work that I have made - to have that feeling of anticipation when you return to the studio to see a new creation. So much has gone into this piece - I have been absorbing all the amazing art and craft I have been looking at on blogs and on flickr. So many encouraging comments from friends and fellow artists over the last couple of months. Thankyou ALL !

Hi Mandy, I can not wait to see the finished result, the structure with the wire looks amazing and so does the textile work. makes me want to start fiddling about with wire, you are an inspiration!

Thankyou both ! Wire is great stuff to work with - i like that it is drawing with line to make 3d shapes - its skeletal quality and covering it with layers of fabric or paper which creates another element.
