A lifetime of imagining and creating blossomed into a singular artistic passion 10 years ago when I attended a workshop on wire sculpture.
The wire looping workshop was taught by Aiko Cuneo, the daughter of Ruth Asawa. I was instantly captivated and inspired by the use of the simple looping technique to produce complex large scale hanging sculptures. The unique combination of robust structural properties and soft pliability make copper wire a truly fascinating artistic medium. Interlocking wire loops are woven into organic shapes ranging from elegant single layer forms to complex mutli-layered mind benders.
My current conceptual explorations and technique development efforts strive to achieve new levels of intricacy and complexity in a way that visually attracts and invigorates.
