Wire Trees

I saw this article online with stunning trees made out of wire. While it’s not knitting-related, it does remind me of lace knitting, yarn overs, dedication to your art and the sheer beauty of wonderful craftsmanship. Enjoy!

Using nothing but wire, sculptor Clive Madison creates tangled trees that grow from wooden bases into dense clusters of leaves and branches. Each piece is made by hand without glue or solder, using single strands of wire that start at the base and terminate at the top. You can see many more pieces on his website, and several are available through Lee Champman Gallery. (via Ghost in the Machine).

    I made a few of these of these wire trees years ago for gifts! One friend of mine says he still has his!! Mine were not spectacular like these, but the same process! These are so artistic!
