Wire work



LE FIL DE FER
Wire's pliability makes an ideal material for creative endeavors of all kinds;  designers have ingeniously twisted and bent various kinds of metal wire to create everything from furniture to accessories to lighting; the resulting pieces are light and airy, linear and minimal or curvy and froufrou, and often extremely poetic, and full of charm.
