High Wire Act


Back in April I answered a call for artwork from Cloth Paper Scissors for their Wild Wire Challenge. CPS was looking for artwork made from or with wire, whether soldered, twisted, braided, weaved, torched, or shaped. In May I was happy to see on Barbara Delaney's blog that I was among the finalists. I am now even happier to find out that my submission was among those selected and has been published in the September/October issue of Cloth Paper Scissors. I share the page with  David Hayes and his very cool creation 'Hot-Wired Terrier.'


My submission 'Bone Folder' was made using a twist on a technique I learned in a workshop with Keith LoBue


You may also recall my recent collaborative sculpture 'Angel' that I made for the Exquisite Corpse Festival, again created using paper and wire.


Many thanks and much appreciation to the crew at CPS for this honor.

Your wire wrapped within the old vintage paper is memorizing. It is never ending if you continue your eyes around the wire and back again. Great technique to get this effect. Congratulations on having your submission accepted and published in Cloth Paper Scissors. That's super! Just got my copy to look at!
