83. Jumbo Bent Wire Skull



Hand Bent 3 Gauge (about 1/8" thick) Wire (finished size 14" x 9.5" x 5"). This was inspired by bent wire portraits created by Kim Frost for the Art-o-mat in Richmond several years ago (sadly I can't find any examples online). 3/4 and side views below...

Did Terry Border (Bent Objects)have something to do with this? Very cool!

Terry has been a great inspiration to me (see here), but actually this one was inspired by another wire bender, whose piece I came across a few years ago in an Art-o-mat, however I can't find his/her name anywhere! I'm hoping I'll get that info soon.
