It has been a while since I wrote here. Frankly I am not all that good in blogging.. I guess Facebook is easier to reach all of you. Nonetheless, that is truly not an excuse.
Winter came here after New Years. And by winter I mean snow. We ve had some beautiful days of pure white and silence. The sun hid in the clouds for weeks and the heavy white blanket of winter fell on everything. In times like these I feel so grateful that I do not live in a busy town. It is very soothing sitting outside, wrapped in a blanket and enjoy a cup of warm coffee without the constant city sounds.
Last week my husband took this wonderful photo of an icy waterfall near
the road where he works. I love the complex beauty of the ice. Nature
can make some very pretty ice sculptures during winter.
During the last week, my husband brought at home some wire they use for
construction. He thought it would be a nice idea if I could recycle it
into something pretty, since they would through it away anyways. I
accepted the challenge gladly.
And what a challenge it was!! This particular wire is the thickest one I
ve ever worked so far! I decided to make a large tree in 2 dimensions.
It is the largest I ve made so far. Its height is 25cm! Mostly
handtwisted till I reached towards the end when I had to improvise.
I m still not sure exactly what to do with it. It is far from finished. I was feeling a bit crazy today and thought how awesome a ring it would make :P On the other hand that is impossible because it is a heavy piece. I would have to think about it in the days to come, but feel free to add a comment for any suggestions.
I hope you are all having wonderful days and that you enjoy the last part of winter. Till next time stay warm, cozy and don't forget to visit me here or of Facebook for more news :)
