Body in aluminum wire

Kropp i aluminiumtrådHere I have sculpted a figurehead in aluminum wire. Aluminum wire is so great because it’s light weight and does not need to be starched afterwards. Another advantage of it is that I can “make lace in the air”. This was a necessity when making the hair. I wove strand by strand and then shaped them as I wanted.

For this sculpture, I have used a model other than myself. A slight crazy girl out of my sewing circle volunteered, to get some “excitement” in her life as mother of three. I am so incredibly grateful for that. Thank you Lina!!! The rest of the circle helped me with the cast. Thanks to you too! <3
