Wire bunnies? .. Wired bunnies? .. Weird bunnies!

Sculpting with wire is very fun – wether it’s lamps or sculptures of some creatures animals. It’s probably a memory of my activities years ago as a gold- and silbersmith that keeps me getting back to this material on an almost regular basis.

I work with two kinds of steal wire: This simple wire they have on construction sites to string wooden boards together for formwork I use for drawing the lines and combine them with a really thin Jeweler’s binding wire.

This time I started out with a bunny-girl that’s more or less two dimensional, with some patience you can get her to stand on her own, so there is a little hint of a third dimension, not very much of a depth though.

So, for the second one I wanted to make sure he is easier to handle and created this 3D sitting rabbit.

Decorative lampshade out of wire

A wire sculpture made its way into a decorative, yet functional lampshade. Playing around with a 3-dimensional wire structure, its shapes and shadows, adding on some garlands of recycled fabric and a few colourful African glass beads, I ended up with an original lamp. The interaction of light and shadow is an important effect that’s fun to experiment with.

If you are interested in the project, or if would like to have one commissioned – get in touch with me!

Bunny drawings

A little series of rabbit drawings and collages from my sketchbook. I used pieces of coloured magazines, watercolour, crayons and ink on brown kraft paper. Maybe these illustrations one day will be the inspiration for a bigger painting? Let‘s see….

The Jolly Rosie says: Wear your mask, even if it‘s awkward.

The transition to the new normal here in Spain coincided with the arrival of summer with warm temperatures… so today I was sewing summer masks – lighter and more breathable than the result of my first attempt of selfmade facemasks- and the Picard had to go on them of course!

Mask hacks, Africa meets Europe

African art with a european touch…. I got some african masks that where imported to sell, but it came out, they might have termites in them, so they could not be sold and should not be inside a house.  A good opportunity for me to play around and do some twists on them… 


whoohoo, I got a fringe! Hack with a brush.
