Barristers in wire
Just completed a commission to make 4′ high wire sculptures of barristers disputing.
The sculptures were commissioned for a hotel bar which is an old court house in York, called Judge’s Lodging.
The project was a huge challenge as not only was it a new way of working for me, but I only had 20days to design and build the piece!
I think of these wire sculptures as 3D drawings and find it amazing how you can say so much with so few lines. I did however need to add more than I wished to make it more stable and less fragile- especially as it’s located in a bar.
Here is a link to a very home made video of these sculptures, which does give you bit more of a feel for the 3d wire work. https://youtu.be/z5zgYtHbYRk
