Art can be made from anything. In fact, creators of art are constantly striving to find new materials to mould and manipulate into aesthetically pleasing shapes and concepts. This gives imperfect beginners like us hope, because we know now that not only a flawlessly executed painting constitutes art, or a startlingly lifelike marble statue. Art is what is created when an artist gives shape to an idea. The medium used to express the idea can be virtually anything, from 3D ink to stones to even a vegetable! In this article, we are looking at creating art from a material that is easily available to all of us, something that we’re sure to find in our hardware or craft kits; we’re talking about the malleable, metallic wire. This seemingly flimsy object can be surprisingly durable and this is what makes it the perfect raw material for creating art. Got reels of wire at home, it’s time you started putting those metallic threads to good use. Here are some easy structures to mould at home.
