Self portrait in wire – preparing for a unit in portraits

Portrait_Carolinelarnach4

I am ridiculously excited about this wire face I finished today. I’m planning a term-long unit on self portraits, including executions in pencil, chalk, paint and now sculpture.

I started fooling about with some wire we had lying around home, after seeing this cool post on wire portraits done at Becker Middle School.

I especially love the shadows my wire face throws against the wall. I’m trying to figure out how we can display the completed artworks, so that they sit a few centimetres proud of their backing.
