How to Make Wire Sculptures : Filling Wire Sculpture Figures


I’m Mark Kooy here with Expert Village and
we are goin to be talking about wire sculptures, braising techniques and tools. So we will
strike up our torch again
and grab our rod. I like using our little base over here. That way I always keep the
hot end down; just heat that up. Again, we are kind of watching to see that you don’t
want to get it so hot
we melt the whole piece. Let’s just see how that comes apart. We may have to readjust
where it is sticking to the body but I think it should be good. Looks good! Make sure that
both pieces are heated. You can see how that it might be too hot and have problems. See
that nice joint, just enough and that line will give us a nice filling in there, some
structure.

    Seems like cheating. I wish my professor would let me use a torch & solder… I'm stuck trying to twist stupid little knots in it. It's a pain in the butt.

    I like how you stick to the actual technical skills rather than showing off an amazing sculpture. I can use my own artistic skills to imagine and experiment with the wire, but what I really want to see is how to do the basics.

    Just how durable are these brazed joints? Is it going to matter if later on in the work these joints come undone?
