Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
This is a collection of projects and finished works of art by contemporary artists working with wire in combination with other materials. A section of fairly uncomplicated projects for jewelry and accessories is included, but the main interest here lies in the artists' comments and photographs of their work. Some designers were inspired by Alexander Calder, while others are fascinated with brightly colored telephone wire. Art students and other crafters will find many ideas for their own work. Recommended for public and academic library art collections. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
