kathy frey
"Wire is now second nature for me. Not that it doesn’t still surprise and excite me, but I have learned to tame the tangle. I challenge myself to create new shapes and coax the wire to do what it does not want. Much of my work is about form and structure—the wire is both the underlying framework and the delicate, linear wrapping that gives shape and ultimately adds the real strength. This process of constructing a piece makes me feel like a sculptor during the development phase, but I still feel the joy and excitement of finishing a piece that is meant to accent and decorate the body. My work and the techniques involved are a wonderful intersection of art, design, craft, and adornment."
