Keeping it small

Working in wire and plaster at a scale similar to the Maquettes of Kenneth Armitage. After week 1 I wanted to use the weight of the plaster to create some movement on the balls suspended on fine wire.

Fine artists mesh is super for this scale of work.  It is easy to tear and mould.
