Bending Wire

(Above) Initial wire frame of a Lamborghini.

(Above) After the paint, and ready to go.

(Above and below) The making of a life-sized Toyota Corolla.

(Above) I love this image. How surreal is this?

ARTIST BENEDICT RADCLIFFE BENDS WIRE. WHAT HE LIKES TO BEND WIRE INTO ARE BEAUTIFUL, LIFE-SIZED AUTOMOBILES THAT ARE WAY COOL. Radcliffe calls himself a “bender” because he bends and welds wire all day. He also says his work is “really hard... and boring.”

The images above of the Toyota Corolla are from a commissioned project for Toyota for an advertisement in the Middle East.

Larry, I come from a long line of hunter/gatherer's. I forage through the morass of art and popular culture, and bring back what I like for you all to feed on. ;)

I'd love to commission a room full of furniture.
