A Wire Exploration
Calder's piece Fish, 1944
Inspired by the work of American sculpturist Alexander Calder, Rainey Room A tried their hand at making and beading wire fish. With our class fish (still unnamed) in front of us to aid our imagination, RRA used copper and silver wire to design their fish sculptures!
Lochie: So you twist the wire around, then you add beads, the tail was easy, you go in and out in and out… Look, my fish is saying HI to our fish!
CC: I like the beads, my fish has an eye.
Jack: (bending his wire) I made a fish, I am really good at beading, because I made so many necklaces.
I’t s fun for me because I don’t like getting my hands dirty.
Jack's Kitty Cards
Jack specifically requested that his kitty cards make it on the blog today. To honor his request, please enjoy the photos below of his kitty cards. He practiced writing CAT all last week and has happily been giving the cards out to his friends as gifts and decorations! "I want people to hang them up or keep them" - Jack
