Light project sculpture construction

I started my light project on a lovely sunny day by the river, Non and I went and picked my own willow and we sat and stripped the leaves from the branches preparing them for weaving

I started by making circles from the willow and wire to hold it in place as my base, using a bucket as a size guide. Then I slowly built each if the balls up always using the bucket as a reference.

I needed a base structure to hand the balls from. On my way to uni I spotted this beautiful branch that i thought looked perfect! I stripped the branches to get a proper look at it and saw it was 2 branches grown and wound together. I thought it was beautiful and perfect for my project.

I then measured out where each of the balls would sit and used wire to attach them.

final outcome:

89.
