The very first Helaina Sharpley wire piece...

This week I've been reminiscing about the past six years and everything I've achieved in my little wire world.... Anyway, I remembered Tim Atkinson had taken photos of my very first piece, made in the Autumn of 2006 (the first year of my degree course.)  So I thought I'd share this with you...

This piece was inspired by St Annes on the Sea pier, as it was in the height of it's popularity (1890s ish.)  The pier unfortunately isn't as elegant as this now, but I work from photographs and so can choose the images which capture me the most.
It's funny to look back and see how wobbly my wirework was back then and so flat!  I'm glad I kept this piece so I can reflect on my development so far.
