As you all know some days ago, my husband has brought me some wire he found. I decided to recycle it and use it for my art. I made a large tree in 2 dimensions as I showed you on my previous post. I did not know exactly what to do with it, but Emma gave me the idea of putting something to hang from the hole and have it as a mobile (many thanks Emma xx ).
For the next tree I ll be making, I have in mind a different style. I will be going through the process with all of you from here. I am very excited about this.
Let us begin then!!
For starters I have to cut the wire. Remember, this wire is rather thick
so I have to use another kind of cutters than my normal small ones. I m
not sure how these are called, but you get the idea from the photo. I
want the tree to be big so I cut them around 60cm if not more. I don't
measure accurately, I want the branches to be asymmetric.
It is a bit of a long process. The wire has a will of its own sometimes and it can lash around. That is why every time I do this I end up with many small cuts on my hands that slowly reveal themselves when I do the dishes :P
After some time, I got my pieces and I bend them like this.
Stay tuned dear friends xx
