I’ve been playing around with more wire in hopes of finding something that feels right. This concept has been in the works for a couple of months and I was anticipating finishing it for the Howland Community open. But then life changed.
Current status: in progress.
Displayed on the table are the wire forms waiting for gutting. Gut is located in the metal bowl. The gut was soaked for over 24hrs and rinsed several times.
The wire squares measure about 4.75″ per side. Annealed wire and a brass wire ball suspended within. When it is covered in gut, it will be more of a “pillow” shape.

Just gutted. This took a while and quite a bit of gut. I’ll have to soak more to complete the others. Notice how the wire is already starting to rust due to the salt packing of the intestines.
After the square has dried overnight it gains a more translucent appearance. The reddish lines are created by the rusting of the wire.
Still have more to cover and then I’ll get to work on the display.
Thanks for looking!
