I love to create sculptural objects with the technique of Russian filigree. I draw the dimensional designs first then mentally unfold the structures, redrawing them as they would be flattened out. I then use these drawings to create paper models to test how the finished structures will bend. My paper models provide templates for the Russian filigree frame designs that I eventually curve and form into the finished sculptural pieces after I solder all the tiny tension fitted wires into place.
