In Overlap, Lindsay Ketterer Gates of Milford, Pennsylvania is paired with Oklahoma’s own Amanda Bradway to create a visual dialogue among found objects, fine materials, and the techniques of repetition and overlap. In her work, Ketterer Gates combines the unexpected material of pistachios with wire to create beautiful and organic sculptures. Similarly, Bradway uses another often-discarded material, goose skulls, in combination with quartz and metallic papers to create her elegant works.
During this one day workshop, you will learn the basics of wire looping. Using colorful coated copper wire you will learn how to make basic forms, add beads and other adornments, change colors, and more. Once you have these basics down, the possibilites of how to incorporate it into your work are endless.
