Several years ago, strolling the side streets near the Palais de Papes on my last day in Avignon, I happened upon the studio and shop: Vox Populi. Intrigued by the window display, I was drawn into the world of whimsical wire sculpture created by artist Pascal Palun.
I had already purchased a vintage dress in St Remy for my infant granddaughter,
but now I had to have her name in wire!
I have since been inspired to bend some wire myself.
Using crystals from old chandeliers, I have fashioned a garland that hangs across my kitchen window,
and stakes to hold table numbers for a son’s wedding reception.
My current project: adding wire and beading to a chandelier frame to hang in the orchard for another son’s wedding this summer.
