New Year, New Weaving

My New Years resolution is all about metal weaving by hand with the different types of metal available, and see where the journey takes me and of course I will be recording the findings and results on my trusted blog.

After a nice relaxing break over Christmas, it was back to the studio today full of ideas for new sculptures. Over the course of last year my experimental weaving was mainly with paper and plastic coated wire to help create some interesting new shapes and forms for my latest commission. It introduced me to the weaves of Corn Dollies which I would still like to continue with after finding a delightful old book whilst on holiday in a bookshop on the Isle of Wight. 

So after a full day of weaving with Aluminium wire, my fingers are very sore but I am pleased with the results. Take a look at the photos to follow.
