Magnificent Materials!

Inspired by the majestic forms of the Autumn teasels arrayed about us, we set out to work in wire and to bring in the natural materials around us. After experimenting with various grasses we soon found the ideal material, the dried stems of the  Black Medoc weed!

What an amazing material it is! It twists and bends without breaking and holds it's form in most compact way. It's twisted layers suggest basket work and the multiple well defined contours give our sculpted teasel forms a graphic effect.  Try it! You'll love it!
