Wire sculpture of a hand and sketch of the sculpture

Wire Hand and Sketch

This project was creating a hand using wire. The final sculpture was based off of sketches of my hands and a model made with crumpled newspaper. The position I chose for my hand is the sign for "I love you" in American Sign Language. I also sketched the sculpture in pencil, trying to capture the 3d structure with simple lines. The sculpture is 10" tall and the sketch is 9" by 12". They were made in October 2015.
