When I first thought of creating this new series, I had already played with steel wire to produce a few other projects in the recent past. I enjoyed how I could shape the wire often creating multiple layers to form an animal, figure or object. The wire became a simple suggestion of a thing, which I felt captured the energy of this object - encompassing its "essence", if you will.
For me, it became a personal longing to embrace this state of being. To feel this primal connection to all around me, and most importantly, to know my own, enduring spirit.
