Using methods taught in Odile Vailly‘s book Wire Bugs: How to make your own Menagerie, I set about learning small sculpture construction. The techniques in this book are simple and easy to learn. Using only hand tools and my hands, I could twist and bend any wire into my own bug-like creatures. I was drawn to Vailly’s use of found objects and hand crafted aesthetic. These images were a few of my outcomes, either using these methods or inspired by them.
