Found Object Sculpture

found metal wire and wood

This piece was for an assignment for a class at Worcester Art Museum, in which we had to make a sculpture from found objects.
Of course the concept has been around forever, but I still like the simplicity of the resulting piece.

The line of the metal actually feels like one of my own gesture drawings. Maybe that's what attracted me to it in the first place.

For those who are curious, the wood base was also found and the holes in which the wire fits were pre-existing. The metal piece is a fragment from a cage that goes around the root ball of a tree.
