Hello Mrs/Miss Berrien,
I am very amazed and impressed by your wire sculpture and cannot believe what you can do with wire, the life you seem to infuse into your art pieces, the gestures and contours your wire sculptures have!

I am taking a class at the community college and I am very frustrated by the 3D wire project. That's how I found you...looking into the internet for ways to 'see' and visualize how to work with this bailing wire that I find it to be so harsh for the hands and for my mind! I am doing a crow/raven and is looking like Terminator bird! I guess there is something difficult for me about visualizing volumes with wire that makes my solid mind totally confused....

I hope someday I can see your amazing works here in Los Angeles, I can see from the photos that the scale is impressive too! Is there any traveling exhibition heading this way? Thank you for putting out there so many works of beauty! All the best,
LM

Thanks for the kind words, LM! Here's a link to my free Wire Tutorial. I'm betting your wire crow/raven is a lot more recognizable than my first cat, so take heart! Go ahead and title it "Terminator Bird", it'll be a blast and your next project will be a tad easier. If you want to see my works in Los Angeles, head for the Zoo. THey have my California Condor with 9 1/2ft wingspan flying across the entry courtyard, and several larger African animal further in. Happy wiring -

Elizabeth

MARCH 24, 2010: "Our Wire Sculpture Kitty"
Hello, Elizabeth ... We were in the Mendocino gallery a few days ago and totally enjoyed the display of your wire work. We have since looked at your website to see even more of your wonderful creations. My husband bought this one for me for my birthday. We thought there were a lot of characteristics in it that reminded us so much of our Maine Coon, Chelsea. We are enjoying seeing it on our wall now that we are home from our trip.

Do you have a book for sale with pictures of your wire art. I work at a school and the children often work with wire. Your artwork in a book would be fun for the children to look at... Thanks,  Marilyn S

Marilyn, I hope to have the first book out this year. In the meantime, enjoy sharing my LESSON PLAN with your students - I'd love to see pictures of their creations in wire... Elizabeth

Ms Berrien:

I ran across your art work while searching for some information about Guy Pullen (who made marvelous Victorian wire houses during the '50s). When I started looking at your sculptures I forgot about finding Guy. The figures you create are interesting, entertaining and charming. I especially enjoyed the African Exotic and Whimsy & Weirdness sections. Thank you for a delightful evening.    Mollie R, Coeur d'Alene, ID

And thank you, Mollie! Your kind words really give me a boost.  I'd love to see Guy's images... are you out there, Guy?
