Drawing with wire

Today I had a workshop exploring the wire drawing technique. We played around with different kinds of wire, used the machines to spot wires, and overall had a feeling for the material. I find the technique quite impressive, as wire used in such a way kind of brings the pencil to life – By giving volume to lines some pretty impressive outcomes could be achieved. In the workshop I made some small earrings and pendants, however here are some outcomes I found online that I think are fascinating and thought-provoking.
