This is one of the most complex of the wire sculptures I made. It is made from a single, unbroken strand of wire. The second row shows images of the sculpture which preceded Wire Man, and of the sculpture that was to follow him.
I made the proto-wire man while still in school, and with no serious notion of pursuing art. I recall a classmate telling me that he was impressed, and that if I got to the next level, then I would "have something".
The successor to wire-man was to be slightly scaled-up, and to incorporate various minor improvement, but alas, my lack of any sort of wire joining technology made this unwieldy to work with, and I set it aside.
