Spiral Wire Figure (Sculpture)

Sculpture wall hanging figure. 

This is made from recycled coated black wire from spiral bound notebooks.

I just couldn’t resist doing something with all that beautiful black wiggly wire. Soon I had this (sort of) legless figure that lent itself very well to hanging upside down against a wall.  Or it could free hang so you can see it from all angles.

I did it by hand without using any tools. It was a bit tangley but really fun to work with.  There’s 4 pieces of wire in total making up this piece.

I’m so pleased to have done a bit of spontaneous sculpture.  Even if it’s not a perfect piece it’s made me feel that more things are possible!

Approx 40cm from head to nail and 29cm from hand to hand.
