Lace Four: No Loose Ends
Hanging or Free-standing Sculpture
Phosphor Bronze – Bobbin Lace
32” H x 28” W x 12” D
I had a short sample of 4.5” wide bronze lace and wondered if I could add to it to create a complete sculpture. To estimate the length of lace I would need for a 2nd bronze ribbon and to help me “see” a potential new 3-D form, I played with the short bronze sample and some black polyester wire-edged ribbon. Ultimately, I curled and stitched 2 pieces of lace together and then experimented with different end treatments. Leaving the longest wires loose and straight proved to be the best arrangement.
