Thing-a-Day – January 15 – another small shell (also with gut)
Day 15 of the Thing-a-Day Challenge
Materials: Steel wire, gut (sausage casing), acrylic glazing medium
Continuing with the theme from Day 14, I made another 3″ shell armature, this time much simpler and out of a single wire. This time I used hardware wire (steel) to that is would rust when it came in contact with the slightly salty wet gut. I also incorporated a loop into the center of the design to make it easier to hang. This form is so much faster to make, I think I will make multiples for a larger installation of these small elements.
