Challenge Day 9
I'm working on getting ready to cast right now, so my studio is a giant mess. Also, I'm almost completely out of materials and I'm waiting for my rio order to arrive. So my piece is really in those flasks! But I dont want to completely flake on my challenge, so here is something I created a few days ago. It is a peacock made entirely out of sterling wire. I think 18 gauge. I've made a mold of it and I shot some waxes yesterday. They turned out ok. I'm hoping to make multiples and experiment with enameling and stuff like that. Its reversible and meant to have a leg, but after a billion solder joints, I sort of called it a day and decided to add the leg after casting.
