“Using old sepia photographs, I first create pen and ink drawings, capturing the aspects of elegance. These detailed line drawings are then translated into delicate and intricate wirework pieces, which cross the boundaries between drawing and sculpture. I twist, shape, manipulate and join the wire using only my hands and pliers. The simplicity of the black iron wire drawings on the calico backing board, creates subtle shadows and delicate movement.” - Helaina Sharpley
