“Easy Wire Art” by Susanne Schaadt is a fun and creative little book on the “emerging” wire art phenomenon. Her easy-to-follow guide has interesting projects from a bird cage to an inkwell and quill. These are quirky and clever creations to try out as a launching pad to making art works of your imagination.
There are twenty-one stylish and decorative projects to try out that would make beautiful gifts for a birthday or Christmas, or as a fancy furnishing for your own dwelling or as a housewarming present.
The guide instructs the artist in types of wire, how to get the wire fixed in a certain position, and ways to mount, hang, or assemble the creations for better utility.
My only qualm is that these beautiful “sculptures” only lead to me wanting more. I feel like after reading through, I felt a bit disappointed, “that’s it?!” This is a great starting point for this new art form for any aspiring artist or crafter.
