Twisted wire

Another use of wire - artist Cheryl Button assembles mixed media "Lost Art Dolls" and puppets from found objects, polymer clay and wire, painting and distressing the surfaces to create intriguing yet vaguely disturbing human figures. Some are inspired by dark tales from folklore. They may not be pretty, but they have a remarkable ethereal beauty. The photography capturing the detail is rather wonderful also.
