I have been in a wire sculpture mood lately. The hardest part is deciding what to try and sculpt. Back when I was working on my wire horse, while waiting for glue to dry, I was impatient. The hardest part about art is patience. So I began to play with wire to get past my restlessness. This is what I ended up with. It’s a turkey, which required less planning and thought that the more complicated horse. However, I do feel that less sometimes is more, and I enjoyed making this little bird.
-Made with 17 gauge steel fencing wire, as well as fine craft wire in silver (to attach the tail piece) and red craft wire for the wattle. The tail feathers are made with embellishments I bought for another project which didn’t pan out.
-This measures 4 inches tall by 3 1/2 inches long by 2 1/2 inches wide (that is, across those big clown feet, which are the widest part of the sculpture)
Thanks for looking!
