This book illustrates stunning wire pieces of contemporary artists, and describes in simple step-by-step sequences how to create 25 beautiful decorative and functional projects, showing how wire can be used for both ornamental and practical designs.You can create baskets, decorative items, kitchen equipment, mobiles, spice racks, frames, hooks, toys, and on an even grander scale, chairs and chandeliers. The book contains all the information you will need to to get started in wire craft, and to take your skills forward to more advanced levels. Techniques of twisting, wrapping, weaving, binding, making coils and spirals, and shaping chicken wire are shown and once mastered, all the projects can be easily achieved.
