This is a piece from my 'Mother & Child' series. I find this relationship fascinating in animals, how instinctively this strong bond is immediate and strong.
These pieces are made by twisting and weaving individual strands of various gauge non-tarnish silver-plated wire to gradually build up the shape of the animals.
The interwoven wire gives the pieces strength and solidity while the open pattern of the weave gives an almost skeletal ghostly appearance, suggesting the inherent fragility in life in itself.
The measurements below relate to the Mother cow.
